Visitors to L.A: Was traffic better or worse than you expected?

I reply to a fair number of L.A. travel questions here and many of the answers (including mine) often contain dire warnings about traffic. This happens even if traffic isn't directly related to the question being asked. So, visitors to our fair city, how bad was the traffic really, and what information/advice can I give to newbie LA tourists who drive? [more inside]

Ahoy, Los Angeles commuters! Out-of-town friends are heading from Long Beach to Valencia this Friday afternoon and have tasked me with recommending whether they should take the 405 vs. the 710 to the 5. (In terms of mileage, they're basically identical.) Help me steer them right. [more inside]

What do you do when you're hit by someone without a driver's license or insurance?

My car was rear ended last night and it's starting to look like the guy who hit me does not have a driver's license or insurance. So I'm not really sure what my next move is. [more inside]

Quickie road trip! How long does it take to drive from L.A. to Seattle? And how long to drive from downtown Seattle to downtown Vancouver, BC? And how long from Seattle to L.A.? How would you budget your time in each city? We're leaving on Sunday evening and we have to get back by Friday night. We might skip Vancouver if the timetable gets too tight. [more inside]

Do you know the nicest way to San Jose?

Will be driving from LA to San Jose. Starting lunchtimeish on a weekday near Century City. Would ideally like to take as much of State Route 1 as possible and happy to split up the drive with an overnight at a motel or something on the way. Need to be in San Jose lunchtime the next day. Doable? Sensible? Should I take the 5/101 and forget about the scenery? And what are the highlights I shouldn't miss?
