SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Traffic problems kept scores of music fans from arriving on time to Candlestick Park for the Paul McCartney concert Thursday night.
Thousands of cars clogged city streets around the stadium hours after the concert started.
“Three and a half hours. We came from Newark, and we’re handicapped, and we can’t even find a place to park,” one woman said, as she circled searching for a spot.
“There’s no one managing the traffic. The flow is really difficult to get in and out of the lanes. It’s a mess,” another concertgoer said.
At about 7 p.m., cars started to back up on entry road that leads from Highway 101 to the stadium and became progressively worse. San Francisco Police told KCBS that was because the main parking closed early and drivers were told to find supplemental parking passed the stadium.
