Famous For Traffic Jams, Mexico City Takes A Cue From 'La La Land'

NOEL KING, HOST:

It's ridiculous, but it's kind of cool. Mexico City, also famous for its traffic jams, is taking a cue. A local theater company has reportedly been sending tutu-clad dancers to spin and twirl through the streets while cars are stuck at traffic lights. No reports of fed-up drivers joining them yet.
