Seems like there should be a solution for this. Maybe the new stadium will take tailgating into account.

Robin Gagnon is a part of the Castleberry Hill neighborhood association. "When it comes to Falcons and Sundays and tailgating, it is a free-for-all. All ordinances go out the window. All control of ordinances go out the window," said Gagnon.

Complaints range from parking issues and it being too loud to an ugly scene left behind.

"Time after time, the trash just lays there for days on end. That's a health issue, it's a biohazard," said Gagnon.

She said the worst part is when people urinate in public. "It's disgusting. Absolutely disgusting to see the kind of activities taking place," said Gagnon. She later added, "It is routine. We conducted a survey and nearly half of our citizens have observed someone whipping it out and going in the middle of a parking lot in a residential area."

The residents might have a long list of complaints, but the tailgaters said it's really not a problem, especially the trash.

I'm not surprised. I work in this area and I've seen the parking lots after a game. The public urination is just gross. Fans need to understand that it's not just an empty lot, people live here.
