Hosted by

Los Angeles has tried to reduce traffic congestion by banning construction on major roads during rush-hour. But in today’s L.A. Times, Jim Newton writes that that ban is costing the city millions of dollars a year. We talk about why that is, and whether L.A. still has traditional “rush hours” anymore.
