Back in LA there was the 10, the 110, the 210, the 405 and the 605…trying to get somewhere fast on those 8 lanes was nearly impossible. At rush hour, less than impossible.
Out here we have the county highway 19, 22, 23, 28 and if you really want to go somewhere we have the 20, a mostly 2 laner that runs from Boston to Oregon.
Rush hour traffic would be a tractor, 2 Amish buggies and a work truck. Unheard of, really.
I have been on these country highways for hours without seeing a single car or truck but mine.
