"Loyd C. Sigmon, whose 'SigAlert' freeway traffic jam warning system made him perhaps the most famously unknown figure in Southern California, has died...he SigAlert tops everybody's list as one of the most distinctive aspects of L.A.'s car culture...Today, a SigAlert is issued only when one or more lanes of traffic will be blocked for at least half an hour.
