What’s with the lights?

What’s with the lights?

By Jacob Tobias

I came out here to LA thinking I was totally prepared for everything. I was VERY wrong. Coming from New York, I thought driving would be a non-issue and yet I’m in the car with my mom, merging onto the 101 and there was a stoplight. I was flabbergasted. Never in my life have I seen anything so strange. Immediately my mind was flooded with questions: Who? What? Where? Why? How? Just to name a few, I don’t want to bore you.

So now two weeks into my time here in LA, I’ve gone to work, attended class and met some great people and yet all I can think about is the stoplights to merge onto the highway. Here I sit, writing this blog, still really confused about the highway situation here. I’m not even concerned about the traffic; it’s really just the lights that lead to the traffic.
