There are a lot of angry tweets about Los Angeles traffic. Just for you, we looked through them all and found 18 that best captured all of the emotions a two-hour commute makes you feel. So the next time you get home angry after another long afternoon on the I-405, take comfort in your fellow gruntled Angelenos tweets. After all, we’re in this congested black hole together… all you can do is hope everyone else knows the rules of California’s roads as well as you do.
But it’s our beautiful, congested black hole.

Whether it’s Pokemon, talks with grandma about politics, or Gatsby, everyone deals with Los Angeles traffic in their own way. I hope these tweets helped you, for what’s probably the first time, smile or laugh about Los Angeles traffic.
Aceable ProTip: Never tweet and drive, even if you are stuck on the 405! You should always have your eyes and attention on the road.
