If car drivers don't pay attention to THIS . . .

If car drivers don't pay attention to THIS, why would you expect that they will pay attention to a guy on a motorcycle in a funny suit?

Chicago drivers have been adjusting to a new reality since the Nov. 4 election: Wherever President-elect Barack Obama goes, traffic disruptions follow.

. . .

A few incidents have occurred in which Chicago drivers failed to yield properly to Obama's heavily armed caravan of Secret Service and Chicago police black SUVs and other vehicles ablaze in flashing lights.

. . .

"Some of the drivers here in Chicago do not seem to understand that a) the Chicago police car at the end of the president-elect's motorcade is serious about having traffic pull over when the officers flash their lights and hit their sirens, and b) it's not a great idea to jump ahead of traffic by trying to cut around the black SUV filled with five heavily armed Secret Service members"

 

On Van Buren Street, a tan sedan attempted to drive around Obama's motorcade.

 

"The SUV cut the car off immediately, and the security team aimed their weapons at the car," the pool report said.

. . .

And always remember why the windows are open in the security vehicles leading and tailing the president's car: To give the sharpshooters inside a clean shot.

Cmon now David, make the text readable to everybody...even those of us who choose the Dark scheme:

So what I really need is a pillion riding backwards like the cameramen at a bicycle race, but carrying an AK-47? Cool, I'll look into that.

Or just buy the Ural that still has the machine gun mount on it. :-)
