Did Amgen cause problems to the rest of us?

What I am interested to know is if it caused problems to those who had to live their ordinary lives over the past weekend. Did it cause traffic/parking problems for those who had to work in non-related businesses, did it cause problems for local sports, entertainment, or Church functioning? Did it cause a problem for those attending the memorial at the Children's Theatre.
In spite of all the good it did us by bringing in so many outsiders who undoubtedly spent their money here, did the event cause any downsides to us as a community?
I personally had to go to SFO and was a little concerned that the extra traffic on the roads that were open would cause a problem, but was relieved to find that this was not the case.
