    Go to the mountains, go to the beach, just go somewhere other than DC.
    Homeland Security is estimating 2.6 million people inside the beltway.

    Go to work at your assigned start time and clock on. Get your 8 hours and let management worry about what you can and cant deliver.

    Just because a street is closed doesn't mean you can't deliver it.

    True but when it comes to Metro DC on Jan 19th and 20th, I'll let you discuss that with Homeland Security and the guys with the guns.
    And with over 95% of the businesses projected to be closed, who you going to deliver to.
    Homeland Security has asked all businesses except hospitals, grocery stores and restaurants to close from noon on Monday and all day Tuesday.
    Not involved in UPS plans but I can make deductions from what Homeland is publishing.

    By the way, welcome to post-9/11 America...things ain't like they use to be.

    All the money that is going to be wasted on all these fancy parties & all the mess it will create could be better spent if this man of change didn't have such a big ego .

    Secret Service will not allow sitting commercial vehicles in the designated areas, period.

    For the OP, I feel that the centers may put all drivers on the street to deliver the rest of the center that is not closed, because the rest of the week will be extremely heavy playing catch up with the "known closed" packages.

    And??? So park as close as you can...It's that simple. During WTO we parked a couple cars at specific locations and had a couple drivers delivering out of them. Even nearby drivers would take a handtruck or two out of them.

    The thing that gets me mad is them extending the bar hours past the normal 2 AM. closings just for this event. Oh boy, not only 3 million people, but 3 million drunk people !!! That's just plain stupid !!:angry:
