Traffic arrives on LA streets

Not sure whether to be thrilled or worried by the ability to now see how the surface streets are doing. On the one hand, it's great: It's a visual confirmation of apocryphal wisdom (like, don't ever take Wilshire through Beverly Hills unless you have to) and kind of convenient. On the other, it's always possible to worry: How will this new version of Traffic continue to change how people live and navigate in Los Angeles? Moving through the city becomes much less about a narrative experience of place and much more about a kind of schematized efficiency.
