    Truth be known -- Los Angeles is among the safest for traffic, fewer accidents per car, per mile, etc.. However, that is with a base of about 13,000,000 to 19,000,000 people, depending on if you include the Inland Empire -- So.Cal. has a greater population than any of the 48 States other than California and Texas. Traffic is high volume -- we are ranked #1 in traffic congestion. There are a lot of us here and even if the accident *rate* is low there are many accidents due to having many people. The really bad drivers get trained or weeded out -- for the most part drivers in L.A. are compentent and safe.

    Easy, difficult? I find it easy, but I've lived here since '65. What driving in L.A. is not is relaxing. What I have noticed on trips is that once out of L.A. I can relax more while driving. Driving in L.A., more so than elsewhere, requires your full attention if you wish to remain untouched by others.

    i agree. but i will say this. what they say about how bad the traffic is in LA. is true. so if you have a lot patience to be stuck in traffic then welcome to LA! where do you live now?
