The 102 Freeway: Los Angeles' Latest Carousel of Chaos


By Rahl Vage

Los Angeles, the city where dreams come true, unless you're dreaming of a quick commute. In a move that's sure to have Angelenos laughing (or crying), the Department of Transportation has unveiled plans for the new 102 Freeway, a road paved with good intentions and questionable decisions.

**A Road to Nowhere**

The 102 is set to feature a "star lane," where drivers can experience the thrill of being stuck in traffic next to a celebrity's limo. But don't ask for autographs; they're just cardboard cutouts.

**Knock, Knock! Who's There?**

Knock, knock.

Who's there?


Gridlock who?

Gridlock so bad on the 102, you'll have time to walk to LAX and fly to your destination faster!

**A Commuter's Labyrinth**

The 102 will also introduce the "existential dread lane," where you can ponder life's futility as you inch forward, and the "broken dreams boulevard," perfect for those who moved to LA to make it big but ended up in traffic instead.

**Eco-Friendly? More Like Eco-Farcical**

In a nod to sustainability, the 102 will have a "recycled promises lane," lined with all the past statements about solving LA's traffic woes. Spoiler alert: They're being reused because they were never fulfilled.

**The Ultimate Destination**

But fear not, for the 102 promises to take you places you've never been before, like the brink of insanity and back. It's not just a freeway; it's a journey through the five stages of traffic grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and, finally, acceptance that you should have taken the bus.
