    LA Traffic Facts

    Little known LA traffic facts about HONKING:

    Honking, while you are in a line of cars trying to turn left at a light, even before the light turns yellow, will realign all of the cars through sonic vibration allowing you to magically control the car at the front of the line, so you won't miss the turn.

    Honking will also cause the car 30 yards in front of you to Parallel Park smoothly, so you don't have to slow down or break courteously while they finish parking.

    Honking is a great way to let that pedestrian, who is using a legal crosswalk, know that you don't give a damn about pedestrian rights or the rules of the road.

    Honking, while you drive faster than the speed limit, will cause other cars to move safely out of your way so you don't have to slow down during your long 5 mile commute.

    Honking can be a great way to express complex emotions such as: frustration, anger, entitlement and loathing.

    Honking is a great way to say "HI" to all your commuting friends.

    Just remember honking is always more fun when everybody does it, so lean on it.

    Rough day in the car? Try communting at 3 a.m. -- sometimes I honk just to break the silence!

    In 8 months in LA i drove roughly 13,000 miles in a 150 mile radius around LA. Now I take the bus and walk each day. This all came from me picking up lunch today for the people in the firm. I drove 1.5 miles round trip. If I had had a gun, I would have needed more bullets.
