Is LA Too Complacent about Carmageddon 2?

Hosted by

Mayor Villaraigosa says, "Plan for the worst," but Metro is already worried that Carmageddon II is being anticipated more with complacency than alarm. Just over a year ago, Carmageddon I failed to live up to advance warnings, and this coming weekend is beginning to sound like business as usual. We hear about the bar mitzvah and the wedding that are not being cancelled, despite proximity to the 405 and about the Artmageddon designed to keep potential drivers focused on their own backyards. Also, will the Stanley Cup champions get back on the ice? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, what's next in Afghanistan?
