On Saturday nights, traffic entering and exiting Downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood may be extremely congested. When motorways are congested, it is recommended that surface streets be used as alternate routes (see the freeway guide below).
Is the traffic worse on a Friday morning commute?
Friday morning commuters may have a somewhat easier time getting to work on Fridays, according to some preliminary findings. The Monday afternoon rush hour, on the other hand, is consistently the least congested of the whole week. It’s no surprise that people are frustrated by traffic in Los Angeles!
