49ers News: Traffic Concerns Vex Fans After Levi Stadium's First Regular Season Game

In this 49ers news and rumors update, a heartwrenching 28-20 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday Night Football might not be the only concern for the San Francisco 49ers coming out of their home opener at Levi's Stadium.

According to Mike Rosenberg of the San Jose Mercury News, traffic after the game was so bad that some fans could swear off coming back until the logjam is fixed somehow:

The post-game-traffic -- still the single-biggest concern about the 49ers move south from San Francisco -- had its first big test with fans leaving at the same time for the first time Sunday, and it didn't look pretty. While post-game transit rides appeared smooth, some fans who drove reported huge waits to get out of the parking spaces, saying it took two hours or more just to leave their lot.

Some fans resorted to driving over curbs to get out and others said travelers looked so angry they were ready to fight the parking attendants. Others, in a fit of rage, claimed they wouldn't return until the situation was fixed.

While it's just one game, these same problems cropped up during the preseason as well - dampering some of the good will that the beautiful new digs in Santa Clara had created.
