  1. CBS 2 is making a joke out of it with the “And you thought you were having a tough day?” bit because drunk driving is hilarious. Nice work CBS 2, that’s some sweet journalism there.

  2. In the past three days I’ve seen three separate flipped or completely totaled cars on the 110 in the same short stretch. Did someone grease the freeway and fill it with boozer while weren’t looking?

  3. No, people are just itdiots. I was almost slammed into by some clown
    on Sunset in Silverlake Satuday night, and his car was putting out a smokescreen too.

  4. I still can’t figure out how he ended up going the wrong way on those elevated carpool lanes?
