Super Bowl XLVIII has been garnering headlines for weeks. In addition to concerns over weather, it's also drawing attention for its restrictive transportation regulations.

Yahoo Sports ran down a list of some of the crazy rules the NFL has implemented for this year's Super Bowl in New Jersey.

  • You cannot take a cab to the game.
  • You cannot take a limo to the game.
  • You cannot walk to the game.
  • No tailgating, unless you're inside your own car.
  • You can risk driving your own car at a cost of $150 per pass, but traffic is going to be crazy.
  • Once parked, you cannot leave
  • You cannot drop-off at MetLife Stadium.

The NFL will charter buses called the Fan Express, which will cost $51 and pick up and drop off passengers at nine locations around the region. Fans can also take N.J. Transit to the MetLife Stadium stop or be dropped off by vehicles that must have parking passes.

Furthermore, no cars will be allowed near the stadium on game day without parking passes, and any car that drops off a passenger will have to wait at the stadium.

    All of that for nothing. Attendance this year is going to be an all time low. Who thought it was a good idea to have a superbowl in the armpit of America?..
