|"Rock of Topanga" in 2005|
Oh, the wonders of modern technology! Before setting off on the morning commute, you can check traffic on your route with Google Maps!
This morning, our two-lane mountain road was solid red.
So I visited the California Highway Patrol traffic site, and sure enough there was an accident down near Pacific Coast Highway.
The CHP site is useful because it publishes a time log of actual communications between officers and other agencies. So I was able to see when it occurred, when it was called in, what kind of vehicle, when the towing company was called - everything.
Here's what you don't like to see in your traffic report:
7:21AM PER UNIT DOES NOT APPR RELATED TO ROCK SLIDE
Just another Topanga morning commute.
