Carmageddon: LA Without Cars (VIDEO)

With Carmageddon looming in the near future, many Angelenos are planning to ditch their normal vehicles for the weekend in favor of bikes, public transport, or their own two feet.

Accordingly, filmmaker Ross Ching has given us a vision of LA without cars. The short film is uplifting and eerie, with gorgeous shots of empty intersections and useless, blinking traffic lights. While some are hoping that the overwhelming Carmageddon hype will leave traffic unusually light, as was the case with the 1984 Olympics, we probably won't see Ching's art become reality.
