Rick Ross is being celebrated in Fayetteville, Georgia, for the vast improvements he made to his 2nd annual car show at his Promise Land mansion.
Last year the event was considered a traffic nightmare that caused traffic jams on area roads for hours.
This year Rick Ross hired a team that is familiar with organizing huge events around Atlanta.
Last year only six police officers worked the event, and this year there were more than 100 officers from several different counties that worked the event.
The City of South Fulton Police Major Marcus Dinard said they started planning for the event three months in advance, and he feels that has a lot to do with how successful the event turned out.
Oh my God!… When you talk about last year, we talking about it’s almost like you wake up to a bad dream. Traffic was horrible.
…Well, we sort of planning for this thing about three months ago.
There are no cars parked on the side of the street, in our neighborhoods, in the city of South Fulton.
The residents for the most part are happy.
I’m happy. Things are flowing straight.
We talked about a wait time again, two hours compared to 15 minutes now.
Fayette County Sheriff Barry Bibb explained how five parking locations near Ross’ mansion were used to secure cars while patrons took shuttle buses to his estate.
The team that Rick Ross hired worked with the South Fulton Police Department, and a multi-jurisdictional task force came together and developed a plan for traffic control.
Business owners, customers, and patrons of the event were very happy with the improvements.

A few weeks before the event, Rick Ross had an issue with Fayette County approving his permit to have the car show, but they worked things out.
Rick Ross spoke to TMZ days before the event and told them about the vast improvements he had in store for this year, and he mentioned he may run for mayor of Fayetteville.
