While the reason for the traffic tie-ups are individually tragic, they are a collective nuisance, particularly during rush hour.
Now, I notice these events are also wasting additional City assets - supposedly in short supply - because this morning a COP shielded the left lane for the cars of attendants for a service.
This needs to stop. If the home can't manage their events to at least avoid peak traffic hours (weekends, too) they should not be allowed to operate there.
The city needs to stop wasting police time with this.
