What we hate and what we love about California driving April 5, 2018

Driving in California was once joy-inducing. Look no further than The Beach Boys or The Doobie Brothers. In 1958, there were just under 8 million registered vehicles sharing California's freeways.

Our freeway building hasn't kept up with the added traffic. No wonder our commutes can be slow, miserable slogs. We asked what you hate and what you love about your commute.
