Stop lights and stop signs are normally considered the bane of all car-loving existence. But clearly we need them. The alternative is terrifying, fraught with chaos and also possibly wanton destruction. As the annoying guy shooting the video says, “this is what happens when you let humanity use judgement.”
When Rihanna sang “Didn’t they tell you I was a savage,” none of us knew that she was really talking about the Los Angeles Metro and their new series of hilariously horrifying safety videos.
Beware this new Los Angeles attraction if you’re afraid of heights. I know I am because nope.
What would convince transit riders to pay attention to an oncoming train instead of Instagram? Apparently, a graphic depiction of certain dismemberment.
Last weekend the L.A. Summer Concours put about $50 million worth of exotics on the pavement outside Los Angeles’ Staples Center. For $250 a ticket you could walk among them and eat some fancy food, but if you missed the shindig you can still drool on the cars in this little gallery.
The intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue is among the world’s most famous—you’ve seen it broadcast every year on the Oscars as the start of the red carpet. But like most celebrities, the tourist-thronged Los Angeles landmark had a very dark secret: It was known as one of the most dangerous…
A couple of comedians left this Nissan Leaf on a Los Angeles street during the weekly two-hour period reserved for street sweeping. And then they narrated a 40 minute live stake-out waiting to see how long it’d take to get a parking ticket, which an astounding 13,000 people sat tuned in for.
The Los Angeles Police Department is ostensibly evaluating two $100,000 Tesla Model S P85Ds as cop cars right now. The police know it’s an impractical vehicle for the application, but they’re not about to turn down free futuristic luxury cars.
Smooth-rollin’ silent-running Segway spotted off-roading “at least three or four miles” up a hiking trail in Santa Monica, California reports LAist.
Ask anyone that has to perform on stage or present things on live TV or radio: it’s hard. However, it doesn’t have to be when you simply stop giving a shit. This news reporter commentary, taken from yesterday’s crazy Ford Mustang police chase through Los Angeles, is a prime example of exactly that. Can you even?…
Los Angeles never fails to disappoint. Here’s some San Fernando Valley action from this evening, in which a carjacking suspect gets cornered after a PIT maneuver and proceeds to go straight GTA, hopping into the police cruiser. She didn’t get far!
Angelenos stuck in gridlock have high hopes for the opening of the Expo Line, which will bring rail transit to the western half of the city for the first time in 50 years. But stealing all the LA transportation headlines is another solution for improving the commute—a car made from a papasan chair.
A hellish and desolate landscape of “freeways”—an ironic name, for they only serve to imprison you in an idling, air-conditioned bubble as life slowly passes you by.
I’m not sure why racing on a public road full of other cars and trucks doesn’t seem like a terrible idea to people, but it is. If simple logic doesn’t get the concept across, maybe this wreck, caused by a race between a Challenger and a Charger, will. Three are dead, and the carnage of the multi-car wreck closed…
If you say you’ve never crashed, many people will say that you just haven’t crashed yet. Those people are assholes, but they’re also right. This past weekend, I got my number called—and I lived to tell the tale.
When LA closes a major freeway for construction, the city usually comes up with scary names for it to keep people off the roads. Carmageddon. Jamzilla. This weekend, the city is taking a different approach. The “101 Slow Jam” not only has a cute name, it has a video starring LA Mayor Eric Garcetti doing his best-worst…
Do you have about $250,000 worth of paintings, prints, and sculptures by artists like Marc Chagall, Keith Haring, Henri Matisse, and Leroy Neiman? Sure you do. It’s hard to find places for all that stuff, so I bet you’re probably thinking of shoving them in a trailer on the street. Some advice? Don’t. Incredibly, they…
