A public service of the UCLA Animation Workshop, The Traffic Cone Preservation Society seeks to save one of the most recognizable landmarks of the Los Angeles freeway system and the bane of all drivers: the traffic cone.

Any driver who has ever been plagued by the Conus traficus or waylaid by a Conus zebricus, the site is an essential field guide to one of CalTrans' greatest weapons.
