Snake-like shape traffic light trails! (Explored FP 12.19.11)

I went up to these hills to get a view of the city, Palm Spring, California. As I was going up I notice that the way up had many curves. Once I get to the vista point, I noticed the traffic coming up and going down. I had my camera with me, and this framing and idea came to my mind. I said, this is really cool, I had to take a shot of this view, and I wondered how it would come out as a long exposure. I was very interested in the “c” shapes and “s” shapes of the curves filled with traffic trails, and to my surprise, here is the result of 80 seconds of exposure!
