This photo was taken while traveling on the westbound I-10 through Beaumont at 4:30 a.m. Friday morning, April 20. The solid glare of headlights on the right-hand side of the photo shows a heavier-than-usual pre-dawn volume of traffic crowding the eastbound lanes of the 10 headed toward Indio for Weekend 2 of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Traffic headed through the Inland Empire west toward Weekend 2 of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio may be heavier than last weekend's traffic headed Coachella Weekend 1.  KVCR's Ken  Vincent explains why, and also rounds up last weekend's Coachella crime statistics.
