Always happy to be shot down for suggesting alternative ideas, but let me try this one!
It seems that every home game we clog up the car park entrance and Cherrywood Road back to the roundabout due to a system that requires paying two quid cash and getting a little red ticket in return. If folks don't realise this in advance or haven't got cash ready or need change sorting out, unnecessary hold ups result.
How about selling a book of (let's say) 10 x £2 car parking tickets that fans can keep in their cars and just tear one off and give it to the volunteer manning the car park and then procede through to the car park more rapidly?
If it did happen, those with Car Park passes, could possibly? use the other entrance, which never seems to be used anyway!! The number of passes would be known, so the relevant number of bays could be reserved at the MRE end of the ground.
Players and officials also come through the first entrance, who could also use the far entrance, to save time for poor old John having to slow them down to ask!!
Yes, it would need staffing and stewarding I know but as, and when, we progress and crowds, hopefully, get bigger it will need to be addressed!!
The other alternative is get there earlier, and there might not be a queue!!, or take the barriers away that stop the traffic flow at the first entrance, and have two attendants for ticket selling, in two lines of traffic! The first part of the previous sentence has relevance of course!
