==Description==
 
 
The Los Santos Freeway is a major highway connecting [[Los Santos in GTA III Era|Los Santos]] with [[Las Venturas]] and [[Red County]]. The highway is a four lane highway with a wide median in [[Red County]]. But, in Los Santos it has predominantly a median with a concrete barrier, but at times it's like a curb with street lamps in the middle of the freeway for illumination at night. In [[Downtown Los Santos|Downtown]] it meets a short freeway to near Grove Street where [[Carl Johnson]] lives. Near the airport, for a short time, the median has two guard rails on each side keeping traffic to their own side, this is due to a tunnel upon which the freeway must encounter. The freeway ends briefly in [[Ocean Docks]] and becomes a major road through [[East Beach]]. Then, after clearing the docks and a few residential home (by way of traffic lights) it becomes a freeway again, on the other side of [[Red County]]. When it nears Las Venturas, it turns and heads west towards its starting point, while staying in Red County the second time around, which makes it a looped highway. Traffic on the freeway is often chaotic as drivers cut each other off and cause pile ups and eventually explosions when one or more cars over turn or when the player fires a rocket from a [[rocket launcher]] at the traffic. At that time, drivers will try and flee their cars before they explode, but usually they die in the process and then it sets off a chain reaction as drivers who didn't flee their cars try to outrun the pileups and subsequent explosions. Most times, they succeed. Sometimes, they fail and die whilst trying to escape. The traffic levels bounce off from time to time, as traffic tries to get where they need to go. Sometimes, it's an easy commute with little traffic, while other times it can be a nightmare with a lot of traffic, especially around the [[Los Santos International Airport]] area.
 
 
==Traffic==
 
 
Most of the traffic on the Los Santos Freeway in Los Santos, itself is residential. By [[Los Santos International Airport]], [[Bus]]es and [[Coach]]es join the freeway along with other commercial vehicles. In [[Red County]], the traffic is more rural and industrious as [[Linerunner]]s frequently use this stretch of the freeway along with other semis.
 
 
==Safety==
 
[[File:Carnage.jpg|thumb|300px|right|A pile-up on the Los Santos Freeway.]]
 
 
On average, the Los Santos Freeway suffers from more pileups than any where else in the state. When a pile up occurs, the emergency crews don't come to treat the injured unless there is a fire or drivers are dead and their bodies are strewn across the highway. The [[Los Santos Police Department|police]] don't block off traffic, so no one else can avoid the collision, so they too become a part of the chaos on the freeway. Then, as the police get caught up in traffic, they too will be rammed by civilians, causing the police to open fire and causing even more chaos. All of these issues are due to a lack of such actions being programmed into the game by [[Rockstar]]. Most pileups happen at the [[Mulholland Intersection]]  (the slope leading to the [[Los Santos International|airport]]) due to fails of merging from oncoming lane ramps.
