ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) - The Erie County Sheriff's Office is releasing tips on how Buffalo Bills fans can stay safe when heading to the Thursday night game this week.
Sheriff Tim Howard released the following tips, to make it a safe event:
-Be on the lookout for stopped school busses while heading to stadium.
-Abbott Road between (20 & 20 A) will remain open until 4:30 P.M.
-All parking lots will open four hours prior to kickoff; and will remain open two hours after the end of the game.
-Tailgate responsibly- either in front or behind your vehicle; dispose of your trash properly; extinguish all fires, including grills, before leaving them.
-It is unlawful to block side streets or driveways when stopped in traffic; this creates grid lock and inconveniences everyone.
-Please do not drink and drive; use a designated driver.
-Wear some type of reflective gear so drivers can see you walking to and from the game.
-Try entering the gates at least one hour prior to kick off.
-Empty your pockets before the screening area.
-If you see any problems inside the stadium, call the Bills Hotline at 312-8933.
- Have fun but not at the expense of others.
