Dodgers traffic is pretty famous in Los Angeles, so it stands to reason that traffic for the Dodgers’ first appearance in the World Series since 1988 would be no different.
The first game of the series is scheduled to begin just after 5 p.m. today, and Dodger fans have been clogging the nearby streets and freeway off-ramps since about 2 p.m.—miraculous, considering Dodger fans are known for showing up to the stadium late (and leaving early).
People who are driving to Dodger Stadium get to sit in air conditioning while they wait in traffic, but for those who’ve opted to avoid traffic and walk, there are reports that LAFD is opening some fire hydrants and attaching special nozzles to create a mist to cool pedestrians.

Hey dodger fam, just want to give everyone a heads up. There are a ton of police in the area near the stadium, so please be careful how you drive. Also, traffic is already backed up at all the gates. To everyone attending the game, have fun! #ThisTeam #LosAngelesDodgers #Dodgers #DodgerStadium #StadiumWay #5Freeway #2017WorldSeries #Dodgerbobble
