A lot was learned from that infamous first visit. Many changes have been implemented as a result. Some of those changes include better coordination with local law enforsement, rolling closures, and when possible attempting not to schedule Obama’s travel time during the height of LA TRAFFIC HELL!

YAY! In between the morning and afternoon commutes.
