Police in Washington D.C. have planned to establish “no parking zones” for a majority of streets in the downtown area on election night.

In a news conference Thursday, Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser stated the measures are aimed to “ensure the city’s safety.” She added that officials were working to prepare for the worst as she believes some residents would like to cause mayhem.

Meanwhile, many small businesses in the area have prepared for possible protests by boarding up their windows as well as hiring security personnel.
