    Amex parking risking lives

    Fair play to the Police and new contenders for this year's Darwin awards!

    However, the chaos that often ensues getting out of the car parks and on to the A27 could be/should be much better managed. The stewards present are simply not trained for the job and are helpless to manage the (disappointingly large number of) selfish and abusive idiots in their cars. The complete lack of control at the Falmer/A27 junctions and roundabouts, combined with the number of pedestrians and more idiots blocking the road waiting to pick someone up, not only slows traffic flow and thus further exacerbates the problem, but also is a fatality waiting to happen.

    Perhaps both the Club and the Police could look at this further and take some control?

      Police don't need to take control, they need to take action against anyone stopping where they shouldn't. A few fines and bans and the message will get through.

      Sounds like he got caught short in the police transit.

      Just as bad are the drivers who bat along the fast lane then cut across to avoid the q heading up to the roundabout (eastbound) before the game

      Dangerous and selfish drivers/passengers.

      There are SO many things the club could do with regards to match day transport / traffic, but unfortunately as those that have the power to make such changes arrive by car before there is any traffic, and leave two hours+ after the match has finished they have zero experience of how any the transport works.
      Thanks Robbie - one day we'll name a stand after you.

      and it's only a few hours a year and football fans who are impacted, so they are never going to put in new lights/lanes/signals/signage etc...

      Last year, I was leaving the uni car park at the East and on the way to the a27 slip road. It was twilight/dark, I can't quite remember, but as I travelled at a reasonable speed in my lane towards the mini roundabout, the traffic was queued to turn right to Brighton and up the hill towards the club, whilst the lane I wanted was clear. I almost hit a father and 3 little children dodging the cars, there was no way to see them but I got a torrent of abuse from the dad although he was clearly in the wrong. They must have been going to the slip road where other idiots always cause problems each match.
      If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice......

      Watching from the bus I think the OB stopped drop offs in the bus stop lay by forcing the wankers to stop on the road.
