Is Thursday the New Friday?
Last night, while stranded at the Sun Valley train station because a Metrolink train stuck and killed a woman, LAist, like the hundreds of other trapped commuters, had the opportunity to watch the traffic on the 5 freeway go by ever_so_slowly.
After we got a ride home from the station, we tuned in to KNX 1070, looking for the best driving alternatives on a Thursday evening. But you know traffic is really bad when even the traffic reporter says, "Well, no matter where we look, things aren't moving." Great.
Isn't summer supposed to mean easier rush hours? School's out. Folks are on vacation. So what's up with Thursday night traffic lately? Are Thursdays the new Fridays?
