President Obama's Visits and Traffic Jams

Apparently the President's visits create a lot street closures and heinous traffic jams in the Big Apple. Unfortunately it is much the same result here in the Westside of Los Angeles.  I want to say it has been 3, perhaps 4 times in the past 15 or 16 months. Each time, I found myself stuck on the road for close to two hours in what would even by L.A.'s normally traffic-laden standards would take fifteen or twenty minutes. I am sure there are some very compelling security reasons for these obscene delays. But one solution might just be fewer visits. Or drawing some distinction between official business and fundraising. Many of the visits have been relating to the latter. Out of respect for most of us Westside Angelenos, can't fundraising events be concentrated in areas (such as the Marina Del Rey area) that are designed to minimize local disruptions?’s-a-nightmare/
