Huge Flow at L'Enfant Plaza

Officials are trying to control the flow of the crowd at L'Enfant Plaza, which is getting huge traffic from people leaving the Mall. Crowds are being allowed to leave thru the fare gates without paying.

If these people used a card to go into a Metro subway station, and don't use the same card to get out of one...the next time they try to use the card to get in, it won't let them (until a station manager clears the card). What a mess that will be.

Yep, sounds like typical Metro foresight. Not unlike their whole approach to the whole inaguration....first off peak, then peak; free parking, then paid parking. What a great test it would be for Obama - if he can fix Metro then I'd say he's up for just about any challenge! Yes he can!

Actually, somehow it turned out okay, at least for me. It charged me on the way in this morning, let me go for free on the way out, and then on my return trip home everything actually worked out fine. Somehow I think it registered not to count charges from today.

People who are that ignorant about the way Metro works should be detained until the bulk of the crowds have already passed.
