Despite months of warnings before July of last year, there was no Carmageddon when Metro closed down the 405 Freeway through the Sepulveda Pass from Friday night until Monday morning. Workers took down half of the drive that crossed the freeway on Mulholland Drive, and LA drivers took it in stride. It went almost too smoothly, and now Metro's having a hard time drumming up public concern about Carmageddon II this coming weekend.
Is LA Too Complacent about Carmageddon 2?
