Update, September 2012—Carmageddon II is upon us Saturday and Sunday, September 29 and 30, 2012. The Getty Center will be closed both days (Getty Villa open). Will it finally be the real carpocalypse, or a repeat of 2011's nonevent? In any case, the webcam below, perched inside the Getty Center's North Building, gives you a bird's-eye-view of the whole lotta nothing' that will be taking place on our stretch of the 405.

For Angelenos, seeing an empty 405 freeway is a rare event. For those who can't get enough of Carmageddon or who never thought they'd live to see any portion of the 405 sans vehicles, now you can watch it all weekend—all 53 hours' worth (actually, more like 35 now)—thanks to the Getty's 405 webcam. Enjoy!
The Getty Center will be closed this weekend; the Villa is open. We'll see you on Tuesday!
