"Carmageddon" in Los Angeles. Serious Business or Media Hype? (VIDEO)Danielle Smith
If you live in the Los Angeles Area – “Carmageddon” is likely a phrase you wish you had never heard. It is being used to describe the semi-controlled chaos expected to accompany the shut-down of a portion of the 405 Freeway beginning tonight and lasting Monday morning. In many cities, this might not be a big deal, but in a city known for its traffic congestion, people are actually being encouraged to STAY HOME. In fact, the city has enlisted the help of the likes of Lady Gaga and Erik Estrada (you remember Ponch from Chips??) to encourage people to stay away. So now, “Carmageddon” deals (want to visit Las Vegas?) are popping up all over the place.
You tell us… serious business or media hype?
