As the person making up this quiz I lean toward hating it – only because of the terrible traffic on the Freeways much of the time. The Texas Transportation Institute, which publishes an annual Urban Mobility Report, ranked Los Angeles road traffic as the most congested in the United States in 2005 as measured by annual delay per traveler. It is worse in 2013-2014 than this report.
