Presidential Travel
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     When he goes out, the President of the United States needs a good car. And not just one - a whole motorcade. And a good airplane. And a good helicopter.
 
2     The president's car is a specially designed Cadillac stretch limousine that seats up to seven people. It has custom armor, including thick, bulletproof glass windows. The Cadillac's tires are bulletproof.
 
3     The president's car often travels in a motorcade, a group of up to twenty or more cars. Police cars or motorcycles lead the motorcade and bring up the rear. Today, presidential motorcades have many more security features than in the past. In 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated while riding in a Lincoln Continental convertible in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas.
