Avoid Protest Closures with E-Policing

Traffic on Main There's an immigration march up Broadway today that looks to cut Downtown's east-west traffic off right during the middle of rush hour. Inevitably, many drivers will get stuck and be thoroughly annoyed by not knowing what's going on.

You don't have to be that driver.

LAPD Central Division sends out First Ammendment notices to anyone who signs up for its E-Policing emails. If you were subscribed, this is what you would have received on Monday:

Procession for Immigration Reform 
TIME: 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
ASSEMBLY: Corner of 7th and Broadway
ROUTE: From the corner of 7th and Broadway, N on 
Broadway to Aliso, E on Aliso to Main, N on Main to 
rally site across the street from Our Lady Queen of 
Angels Church
CONTACT: Latino Movement USA
Juan Jose Gutierrez

E-Policing won't do anything for those times when you hit a filming closure, but it's a great service for knowing about First Ammendment events Downtown.

Update (8:20pm): Hartley Voss sends in this great shot of Main street traffic as viewed from the PE Lofts around 7pm. That's a pretty solid sea of tail lights.
