Traffic Hacks 101: Bicyclist Spotted On LA Freeway In Heart Of Hollywood

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) - That's one way to beat traffic.

A lone bicyclist was captured on social media riding along the 101 Freeway near Highland Avenue in Hollywood.

The rider was apparently headed southbound in the number 3 lane in the undated video, which was posted Tuesday. He also did not appear to be wearing a helmet as required by law.

While definitely an unusual sight, biking on the freeway isn't entirely illegal in the state of California - roughly a quarter of the state's 4,000 miles of freeways is open to cyclists, though primarily in rural areas.
