Traffic congestion is not only a world-famous problem for Los Angeles (often times worn even as a badge of honor), it is a burden that every citizen, business owner, and public official bears on a daily basis. It is an accepted way of life — most people are resolved to just dealing with it. The challenges to relieving traffic congestion not only affect the quality of life in this city, they also affect its future. Nowhere can that be felt more than in the world of real estate. Virtually every development project considered in Los Angeles is required by the State’s California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) to undergo an analysis of the impact it will have on existing traffic patterns.
