Nearly run over by Mike Pence this evening

Crossing a street near my Surry Hills, Sydney home today. 4 motorcycle cops suddenly turn the corner and wait and then speed up as a 10 car cavalcade with US flags sweeps by.

I waved. No response.

Mike Pence visit, Anzac Day commemorations have Sydney police on high alert
By Lily Mayers and Riley Stuart

New South Wales police say they are well prepared for the weekend visit of US Vice-President Mike Pence, who has arrived in Sydney tonight.

Several exclusion zones are in place around the harbour city's famed landmarks ahead of Mr Pence's three-day Australian visit.

NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Murdoch said police were working very closely with the US Secret Service during the visit.

3. I'm too polite.

but now I know the sort of, secret back route they take as bizarrely almost the same thing happened about 9 months ago with Angela Merkel when she was visiting.

You would think they would vary the route.
