Not saying the commute wouldn't be a problem. I'd hate it to. What I'm saying is that if he's talking just about the city itself, Anaheim wouldn't be a bad city to have to work in.

traffic on the 55 and/or 5 is terrible especially in the afternoon.s
for me , it was not that bad last year: about 35-45 minutes both ways from costa mesa to torrance and back.
but for some reason, traffic has gotten really bad this year.
at least 50 minutes and regularly 1 hour and 5-10 minutes each way.
so i ve joined a vanpool last week.
cut my commute time to about 45 minutes both ways, but i save half on gas. also i get some work done in the van.
It's actually Tustin to Orange and from the Tustin/Orange border. I'm only on the 55 for a mile to get onto the 22 for a couple exits so it is against traffic in the morning. Plus both work and office are right off the freeways. So 8 minutes is being conservative as it doesn't normally take that long. Anaheim would be fine too as it is again against traffic if getting on the 57 or even the 5 for a couple exits.
Going home, I get on the 22 (office is right next to the onramp) and get off on the second exit before the 55 so I don't hit traffic except for a minute or two because people don't know how to merge onto the freeway.
