Los Angeles is well known for the terrible highway traffic so if you're about to tell the people of that city that construction will cause MORE traffic jams, you better have a special way of doing it. Mayor Eric Garcetti's slow jam will soothe and charm you, even if your weekend plans have been ruined. 

He also has this amazing quote about slow jams and planned traffic delays:

Is this cool? Is it not cool? It should be on the level of your high school teacher "rapping" about chemistry but the smooth sounds of saxophone have me all confused.

Riding a bicycle on a busy street can be terrifying even without some lunatic pushing you off your bike into traffic.

London Metropolitan Police released this harrowing video Aug. 25, in the search for the insane monster who chased a cyclist down after she totally politely asked him to watch out for her while he crossed the road.



The silvery-est lining of this dark, fuming cloud is that she wore he head camera to capture the whole thing so the dude can hopefully be caught.

In the meantime, watch out for those cyclists on the road. They are helping the environment, alleviating traffic and trying to improve themselves.

And on a broader note, let us never forget this sage advice from Bill and Ted.
