Los Angeles Commuting Tips and Tricks

Los Angeles, California, USA downtown cityscape.

Everyone in Los Angeles knows about the city’s congested roads, but you can make it easier on yourself by following a few easy L.A. commuting tips, courtesy of Hornburg Jaguar Los Angeles.

  • Take city streetsL.A.’s highways are packed during a 3-hour rush hour period at either end of the work day, but if you can navigate the grid of L.A.’s surface streets well enough, then you can avoid some of the worst highway traffic.
  • Know the rules – In the City of Angels, you can turn right on red if you come to a complete stop and there’s no cross-traffic. You can also pass on the right on multi-lane highways. These are just a couple of the rules that make L.A. driving different – and these rules are worth keeping in mind.
  • Carpool – With L.A.’s carpool lanes, you may not be able to avoid traffic jams, but you can save time (and, little by little, the planet) by carpooling with a friend or family member.
  • Know your way around the freeways – US 1, SR 2, I-10, and I-5. Those are just a few of the many freeway names you’ll want to know, so you can understand the traffic updates, or easy workarounds in the case of traffic gridlocks.
  • Come prepared – Let’s face it: You won’t be able to avoid traffic jams altogether. But you can make your commute a bit more enjoyable. If you’ve got a car with high-end connectivity, you can plug in and play your favorite songs or podcasts. You can turn your commute into a learning experience, or just a leisurely time.
