Presidential visit could impact local cab drivers financially

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

The countdown is on for President Obama's arrival, some people are looking forward to it and some say it is going to impact them financially.  

Several local cab drivers told Channel 3 - they've already asked for that day off.      

Some say they wont make any money that day either waiting in traffic or told to wait as a security measure.

We talked to the President of the Chattanooga Airport Authority Friday, he did say there will be minor delays and traffic will probably be re-routed. The exact time and roads wouldn't be released until Tuesday morning.

"There may be access of roads that may not be traveled," said Terry Hart, CEO of Chattanooga Airport Authority.

Hart said only a select few will know security details the day President Obama arrives.
