'Obama's Security Team have Cleverly Surrounded him with a Wall of Gridlock' & Other Tales from the Today's Traffic Jam
Anytime a President has arrived in Los Angeles, traffic has been inconvenienced. But today's afternoon rush hour visit of Obama seems to have had a magic touch in that really unmagical way. Angelenos have been sharing their experiences from the road, some funny, some reeking of exasperation. Here are a just a few of their stories.
Update: Writer Hunter Walker from The Wrap was caught in the gridlock and pulled off the road to file a story at Starbucks. " Those of you who are familiar with Los Angeles know that closing these three streets mean the entire city will be gridlocked. On LaPeer and Olympic, I was literally barricaded in on a small, residential block for over an hour with at least fifty people for over an hour," he wrote. "Going through this gridlock is extra-painful because I know it is due to partisan fundraising rather than state business."
