The US President’s motorcade has one task only – keep the president safe.

Sitting in a $1.5 million vehicle called ‘The Beast’, US President Joe Biden is protected by his bulletproof car, his secret service personnel, and the support vehicles.

Nothing is left to chance where the safety of one of the world’s most important people is concerned.

There’s three limousines, a technology jamming vehicle to stop explosive attacks, teams of secret service vehicles for defense and attack, an ID car, a roadrunner vehicle, a hazardous material response unit, and motorcycle outriders to keep everything running smoothly.

It’s a lot, for sure, but it’s definitely necessary.

Threats are very real, they can and do happen, and – if the president has to take a short drive – that is where the opportunities arise.

So, the full motorcade is there to do a job, and has to be ready to be called into action.
