National Traffic Festival
November 8 - 15
The Los Angeles city council has declared the week of November 8th – 15th as National
Traffic week and will host the first National Traffic Festival.
The Council figures that all the small cities around the country like Ames Iowa (the Corn Festival) , Traverse City, Michigan (The National Cherry Festival ) and Eagle, Idaho (the Rocky Mountain Oyster festival ) and others, were getting way too much attention for their little festivals. " In Los Angels, we are known world wide for our traffic. Why not
celebrate it" said Joe Jerkier, councilman from the rampart area of LA " We plan lots of events that should generate even more traffic, which is our claim to fame." Said Jerkier.
Some of the events planned are the Road Rage Target shooting contest, the drive-by concert on the freeway, and the sure to be popular "bumper tag". - Staff
