Default LA Traffic Channel

how often do they update the traffic reports on this channel in this commuter town?

there was a horrible accident on the 10 East tonight during rush hour. i was practically parked on the freeway. Not one mention of it on the LA Traffic channel. had to flip to KFWB to really find out what is going on

Up here in the San Francisco area it isn't much better. I usually switch to KCBS which has updates every 10 minutes. Seems easier than the every 6 minutes or so for outdated content on Sirius.

They used to have a traffic reporter on the San Francisco stream that you couldn't understand what he was saying. He either had a speech impediment or he just had one of those voices that got wiped out by the compression.

Overall the traffic streams are pretty useless to me.

The LA traffic channel pissed me off yesterday. I swear it played in a loop for almost an hour before it was updated. I saw three wrecks in my 70 mile drive yesterday (1pm to 3pm) that were not even mentioned. Due to me modifying my truck's radio antenna, I don't have AM/FM reception anymore, so I can't flip over to KFWB or KNX.
