The Fastest Moving Streets in LA?
You know how the saying goes when it comes to traffic in Los Angeles, "take Fountain." And somehow, it seems to still hold true.
Yesterday in an LA Times interview with Brian Chan, the city's traffic engineer in charge of the Automated Traffic Surveillance and Control (ATSAC) system, he tells them what could possibly debunt the city adage.
Q] What are the fastest-moving east-west streets in the city? A] Adams Boulevard. Or Venice Boulevard. If you drive around 25 to 30 miles an hour, you should hit a lot of the signals.
