As Predicted Only A Limited Number of People Will Fit Along The Parade Route

Millions of people are expected to be in downtown Washington DC to watch inauguration.

However, some may not be able to get past the security checkpoints, due to the limited number of people that can fit in the space.

"Washington Post reported that the parade route has a capacity of 280,000 to 300,000 people, and that once that number is reached, checkpoints will be closed and no one else can enter the area around the parade route."

It appears that the millions estimated to show up, might want to also consider alternatives, if they are unable to view the parade around the National Mall.

Do not to push people to make your way through the crowd.
The last thing we need is a stampede and riots.

And remember that "The purpose of this inauguration is to honor the incoming president with formal ceremonies".
