Vice President Joe Biden will be in town this Wednesday to attend the Espy Awards in downtown Los Angeles. And you know what that means: traffic. America's Uncle Joe plans to spend the earlier portion of the day in San Diego, where he will speak at the 10th Avenue Marine Terminal, according to CBS Los Angeles. He will then head to downtown Los Angeles where he will present sports broadcaster Craig Sager with the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the ESPY Awards at Microsoft Theater. After that, he's off to Hawaii to meet with Japanese Foreign Minister Shinsuke Sugiyama and Republic of Korea First Vice Foreign Minister Lim Sung-nam.

Looking to stay far away from snarled traffic? Here's how to avoid Biden-jam, according to the LAPD:
