OC to SFV From Yorba Linda we never go through LA, we use the 210 to get from OC to the Valley or back and we never use the 5 freeway, too risky time wise.
OC to LA 91 and 405 have car pool lanes from OC to So. Bay.
OC to RIV Toll roads are good but normally take us too far out of our way. Normally we use them when there is a traffic alert. Going from Fullerton area to Riverside County I normally use Coal Canyon Rd. instead of the 91 or the 60 freeway.
SFV to OC I use the Coast Hwy when returning from Oxnard, may not save much time, but an easy drive against traffic, plus it is scenic on both sides.
LA Take 5 south to the 10 east to the Long Beach south to the 5 south to miss 5 level interchange
OC Going south on the 5 or 55, if traffic is at a standstill, exit on 4th or any exit south of 4th and head southeast. 4th Street becomes Irvine Blvd which becomes Trabuco and gets you to Mission Viejo.
SFV to LA 405/101 - Use Sepulveda Blvd instead of 405 to/from SFV ~ Los Angeles (Sepulveda Pass) if 405 is backed up over the grade.
SFV 101 from Las Virginas to Westlake Blvd; use Agoura Road if 101 is backed up
