"Loney?" What are you trying to do, dilute my trademark?

IIRC, National turns into Jefferson shortly after Robertson. Also, don't discount the freeway access lanes. I think the La Cienaga exit is unmarked as to its thru status, meaning it clears out of people who don't know it goes through to Fairfax.

I might be wrong, but I thought I heard somewhere you were technically supposed to wait behind the limit line until you could turn left. Here's CVC 22100:

"(b) Left Turns. The approach for a left turn shall be made as close as practicable to the left-hand edge of the extreme left-hand lane or portion of the roadway lawfully available to traffic moving in the direction of travel of such vehicle and, when turning at an intersection, the left turn shall not be made before entering the intersection. After entering the intersection, the left turn [etc...]"

In other words, it doesn't say anything in there about waiting behind the line. Some other section of the CVC might have more detailed instructions.

Lonicious -- I read that statute as saying clearly that we get on out into that intersection, and kick ass! Unless yr on some kind of fruity road-bike....

There might be some other section saying that you can't enter the intersection and stop or something, but, since it doesn't appear to be in the section about turning, I'd doubt it.

I only have a mountain bike, and a few days ago I pushed and carried it up that very visible firebreak on the southwest corner of the Verdugos. I prefer to avoid traffic when biking.
