GREEN BAY - With a new season upon us, the Green Bay Packers and law enforcement have some reminders for those tailgating in the Lambeau Field parking lot. But some fans say it has gone too far.
For the first time the Packers are asking fans in the Lambeau parking lot to keep their tailgate area within six feet of their car.
They say it is a general distance to keep a path open for cars and people.
Authorities say it's an educational issue.
But some fans even told us a parking attendant had a tape measure and is making people move if they are beyond six feet. And they aren't too happy.
We hear from both sides.
"At this point, it's more of an educational information for the fans and we'll slowly work on it over the year,” said Captain Joe Gabe, Green Bay Fire Department.
"They made the people behind us move their stuff because they were outside six inches outside of their increment. I have a problem with that,” said Mary Merts of Milwaukee.
The Packers say they've always had a general rule to keep tailgating within reason, but they say the six foot distance should give fans a better idea of what they mean.
