Super Bowl 2012: Traffic May Be A Problem In Indianapolis On Sunday

Did you know that when a mid-sized city like Indianapolis hosts a massive event like the Super Bowl, the city's infrastructure could be over-extended in an attempt to handle all of the people who flock to the city? Now you do. Overcrowding was a very big problem on Friday and Saturday at the Super Bowl Village, where over 200,000 people have flocked over the weekend. Thankfully, things have been planned well and the police are doing their jobs, preventing any kind of major incidents.

Still, both automobile and pedestrian traffic could be an issue on Sunday. Downtown Indianapolis and Lucas Oil Stadium are obviously used to high traffic for Indianapolis Colts games, but those games generally don't attract hundreds of thousands of people who do not even have tickets.
