JZ, good for you - I'm talking about the winter. yes, it is a beautiful drive, one of my favorites. I live up that direction and have been driving 395 since about 1963 and as a passenger about 10 years before then. I'm not talking about the road conditions, it's the drivers. Skiers drive crazy. They want to be the first on the slope and the last back to LA. Holiday weekends are the worst...ever been stuck in southbound traffic backing up for miles through Big Pine, Independence, Lone Pine and Olancha?? ....Oh, and during my 53 years traveling 395 got stopped once by the CHP. My fault. Drive sane and within the limit = no problems with the cops

Stay off of 395 from now till June. The traffic between LA and Mammoth sucks. They drive like they ski. Makes Mexican drivers look sane



This is complete and utter bullchit. I've driven up to Mammoth 50+ times. It's a beautiful drive. Rarely much traffic once you clear LA, even on the weekends. Never crazier than any other road and 10x easier than driving MX 1.

The biggest problem is there are many cops and they'll get you if you go too fast.

Naw, never noticed anything different than any other road. Tons of cops and speed traps too. No one drives that crazy. Never all that crowed. Disagree with you telling ppl to avoid the road. Over exaggeration.

Now, if you were talking about the 15 going to Vegas you'd have a point. Have done that 100 times and it's a crazy ride.

We went up there about a week ago and shot some video. Got 5 feet of snow in 3 days.

I have a big problem with that video: IT'S NOT LONG ENOUGH!

Well done!
