Freeways: can't live with 'em, possibly have tried to live without 'em. But no matter how you slice it, there they are, in your life, just STARING AT YOU, daring you to hate them.
Weighing all the factors one could possibly weigh (how useful the freeway is, does it go to Disneyland?, will it get you to Santa Barbara faster than the 101...?), we came up with this by-no-means-scientific ranking. If you disagree and want to tell us how stupid we are, well, that’s what Internet commenting forums are all about.
18. The 47
Our last-ranked freeway is, believe it or not, an actual freeway -- a little nub near Long Beach that's mostly an industrial and port access roadway. So, a loser.
17. The 14
Remember in 2007 when those two tractor-trailer trucks collided in a tunnel along the truck lanes for Southbound I-5 at an interchange, and there was a massive tunnel fire and the entire 5 was shut down for days? ... So if you wanted to go to Santa Clarita for whatever reason, you had to drive all the way out to Ventura first? Yeah, that happened on the interchange to the 14. This is a stupid freeway.
16. The 605
"Hi, yes, we'd like to petition to create a freeway that doesn't really go anywhere useful. And also, more importantly, has insanely confusing South/North signs for nearly every exit. We can do that?! Thank you so much!"
