List Rules Anywhere in LA and LA-adjacent. If people drive in or out of LA, it counts.

Hey LA dwellers, how would you rank the worst parts of town to drive in? What spots would you rather volunteer for a root-canal over driving through? I've included times of day in my list, as most roads aren't *always* congested (exception: 405). Vote for the WORST and add your personal hell-spot if it's missing.
