Carmageddon Doesn't Care About Your Botox, Prius, or Audition

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

It's coming, and it doesn't give a hoot about your busy life. Carmageddon doesn't care about your Toyota Prius, your audition in Burbank, your Les Miz or Shrek the Musical tickets, your meet-up in Runyon Canyon, or your Groupon for Botox.

"Just park your car that weekend," advises a wise Xtranormal bear in this goofy video ribbing Angelenos' panic about not being able to use a portion of the 405 Freeway for a weekend all while pitching a website that aims to help L.A. cope with the seemingly un-cope-able. "Explore your neighborhood. Find a new friend." It's true: It's not impossible. "It's only a road. Get over it."
