Only takes a minute
I am in serious culture shock here in Ohio. The roads are weird, most of them are like dual lane roads. Where are the big, wide, quadralane streets? There are few left turn lanes, that I’ve seen. In LA this is certain death. In Ohio its quite manageable. You can actually turn left before the light turns yellow.
No one is in a hurry to get any where, drivers are pretty courteous and it really only takes a minute to get anywhere. To go 10 miles it takes 10 min, 15 at the most. You don’t need to factor time lost in traffic when you calculate when you need to leave to get somewhere. (shock) There is one highway that takes you around town. (what?) Maybe since there is no traffic people have less road rage, so they’re nicer. Who knew driving could be relaxing?
