creditTheresa at The Wit of the Staircase points to a Quicktime video that glides silently over downtown at night, letting you watch the light patterns formed by traffic moving onto and along the Harbor Freeway and adjacent streets. It runs a minute or two, hosted on the Grass Collective website.

BLDGBLOG ran a piece last year on the Geometry of Los Angeles Traffic Control.
