    IMHO the major cause of the gridlock is all the trucks. They need their own roads, separate from the rest of the normal idiots. And better collision response. One accident can tie up multiple freeways, and surface roads for hours. I used to commute from Rialto to Wilmington, and on some day’s (especially the Friday before a holiday weekend) that 75 miles would take up to 4 hours. And if I didn’t give myself an extra hour in the mornings, I would be late. Sometimes I wouldn’t get on the freeway at all, and just take surface streets the whole way.
