Adam Carolla having an absolute melt down about the freeways around Burbank and Glendale and Sun Valley.  Is it really that bad?
Start at 15:00 mark to hear it.  I never knew.  He is amusing.

I went to judge at a chapter meet in Fallbrook, Calif. this last weekend.  The traffic is horrendous and the people driving are lunatics on the 15.  Never again, traffic is out of control, even on a 16 lane freeway!

I guess I get the wrong impression when I watch Jay Leno rodding around on wide open roads or The Smoking Tire when they are test driving the latest fast car.  When I first visited California and that was to get 843, I felt like I was in a movie.  I was not disappointed seeing Palm trees and lots of collector cars in the road.  I was impressed.  Adam Carolla paints a different picture I see.

I believe it's bad and has been bad on certain roads. Last time we were there many eyes ago, a trip from point A to point B was not described in miles but in time, and that was an interstate.

Basically, if you are not traveling between 10AM and 2PM, then you need to double or triple your travel time.  PeelOut

The only real time to enjoy your Shelby on PCH is at 7AM on a Saturday or Sunday, but boy is it a nice drive.   Cool one
