Carmageddon is upon the good people of Los Angeles, who will have to suffer through a 10-mile closure of the 405 Freeway for a whole weekend. The commuting nightmare threatens to bring the car-dependent city to its knees. Or just make people stay in their house for a couple of days.
Celebrities based in the city, like Tom Hanks, have offered their take on the event on Twitter. Check out a few tweets below:
This weekend, LA! Avoid Carmageddon, Gas-zilla, 405-enstein, Grid-lock-apalooza! STAY HOME. Eat & shop local! Hanx
Thank God I won’t be in LA for the 405 closing! I’m not mad LOL
Just tuned up my motorcycle & filled my backpack with Mexican Viagra. DM me your address. #CARMAGEDDON
two other things.... #carmageddon will be awsome! Few things unify L.A. and this is doing the trick. I’m going to drive a lot this weekend
