Traffic and Security: Major Concerns at Football Game

HALAWA (KHNL) -- One of the major concerns for Friday's game was security. Would drunken fans ruin the evening? So far we have heard of no major problems.

If you look around the stadium parking lot or inside Aloha Stadium you can see an increase in police officers and security personnel.

Stadium authorities say that anyone caught throwing objects or acting inappropriately will be asked to leave the premises and dealt with accordingly.

The other major concern was traffic. And there was lots of it.

With thousands packed into Pearlridge and thousands more looking for parking at Aloha Stadium it was the perfect recipe for a traffic nightmare.

It looks like many of the UH fans arrived at the stadium early.

In fact the stadium parking lots were closed by noon forcing the rest of the fans to find parking around Halawa.

However, for the lucky 8,000 cars that got into the stadium parking lot, it was kick back and relax time.

Many had five hours to kill before kickoff.
