But when the president goes out for dinner, it leads to some driving detours in the nation’s capital. Any driver for a DC limo service worth his salt has to be on his toes. The entire street where the restaurant is located will probably be blocked off. Sometimes adjacent streets are blocked, too. The Secret Service usually sets up a tent outside the restaurant’s entrance, so nobody has a direct line of sight at him as he walks in.
