Are you ready for Carmageddon, the lockdown of a 10-mile stretch of the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles this weekend, July 16 and 17?  Beyond the normal nightmare of traveling around in the Los Angeles area, Carmageddon will likely throw even the most patient, most experienced Los Angeleans in breakdown mode. And there's no hope of Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck saving us from this Carmageddon.

Here are some tongue-and-cheek survival tips to help you cope with the end of the world, we mean, The Great Los Angeles Carmageddon:

Stay Home.  Work on some much neglected home improvement projects you've been putting off.  Just make sure you don't need to make a last minute run to Home Depot.

Call Exclusive Sedan to get you where you need to be, if you need to be somewhere at a certain time.  Our experienced drivers are the most up-to-date and know all the tricks and manuevers to get you there sooner rather than later, much later.

Stock up on supplies.  If you're traveling with kids, make sure you have enough juice boxes, water, and healthy snacks to tide you over.  Also make sure you have enough board games and books to keep everyone happy.

Learn something new.  Download podcasts, or listen to self-help CDs to pass the time.  You may even be able to earn a degree, depending upon how long you're stuck.

Talk to your therapist before boarding your vehicle.  Get some coping techniques and exercises down before hitting the highway....you'll need it!  Try comparing your stuck in traffic situation to things that may be worse, like...root canals or in-grown toenail removals.

We hope you enjoyed our humorous approach on dealing with Carmageddon.  In all seriousness, if you need ground transportation help getting around Los Angeles, please give us a call.
