Tampa, Florida -- Call it convention commuter confusion. These days, you need to go with anything but autopilot when it comes to navigating around Tampa Bay.

Mike Bosch, a salesman, can usually make it to his customer in about 20 minutes. But on Tuesday that trip doubled.
Although traffic doesn't seem to bother this self-proclaimed Republican, Bosch figures the taillights spell a bright spot for the area.
"It's good for the city, there's a lot of businesses profiting from the convention. So for me to be inconvenienced and not use the Crosstown for a few days is very minimal compared to what this convention is doing for our city."
