Who Said L.A. Traffic Couldn't get any Worse?

It can when the President is in town for a fundraiser. 

Drivers abandoned their cars, yelled at police officers and fumed as traffic came to a halt for the presidential visit Monday night. Some streets in Hancock Park were even closed to pedestrians.

One man went for a run just as the area was locked down and found himself waiting 25 minutes at a yellow police tape barrier to get back home.

Residents reported that commutes and errands that typically took minutes turned into hours-long ordeals. One particular complaint was that streets remained blocked for hours -- even when Obama was inside TV producer John Wells' Hancock Park home at a fund-raiser.

"What has occurred is way beyond reasonable and can only be described as negligent," L.A. resident Kevin McCarthy said in an e-mail to The L.A. Times.

The Los Angeles Fire Department reported no delays for emergency vehicles. But the LAPD and other officials heard an earful from angry motorists.
