You know you're in L.A. when "traffic on the sixes".
What does it really mean?
It means the traffic report is made every ten minutes at six after the hour, sixteen after the hour, twenty-six after the hour, etc.
For example: 7:06, 7:16, 7:26, 7:36... and so on.
LA has terrible traffic, so they need traffic reports every ten minutes.
