'Carmageddon 2' Starts Tonight

Over-hyped, you say? Even Los Angelenos admit that last year's "Carmageddon" ended with a whimper, but some say the sequel could be far worse,Reuters reports. A new 53-hour closure of the 405 Freeway north of the Getty Center starts tonight at midnight and drags on until Monday at 5am—so it's like last year, with one exception: No one seems to give a hoot this time. "If people don't think it's a problem, it will be one," says an city councilman.

In other words, unaware drivers may hit the freeway this weekend and really jam it up. One possible diversion for locals was created by more than 100 arts organizations and advocacy groups:, a listing of art shows across the LA area, the LA Times reports. "The last Carmageddon was the first time in a while that everyone in Los Angeles was thinking of one thing—you couldn't help it," says a leader on the project. "We wanted a way to unite the art community around this and promote art across the city."
