    The traffic congestion leaving RSA at 11am is understandable thanks to school closings, people happy to take off, and increased apprehension fed by the media. But when RSA announces an official time for opening, unnecessary traffic congestion is created. Why not have an official time for opening with the gates actually open before that?
