I know LA is one of the bigger towns and I think there will be some guys travelling by car to work so I know there will be a lot of traffic on the Freeways.
I've been in LA about 10 times and I know the the roads are always crowded and driving on a LA-Freeway is like flying thru an astroid field,
But on my next journey, after 3 days in LA, I want to go north to Fresno and further on to Yosemite NP.
This will be a long drive I know, and so my question is:
Would it be better to wait till 9am when the hardest rush-hour is over or will be the most traffic going the other way, into the city and I can start at 8am or any time I like?
Is there a carpool-lane on the Freeway to Fresno because I'm travelling with a freind so it would be alowed to use them I think and travelling would be much faster and easier in that lane.
PS: It will be early June and I will start at the Custom Hotel near LAX.
