There is another World Cup game this afternoon featuring Brazil that could potentially end right at the height of rush hour. In the past, spontaneous celebrations along Main Street in Danbury have snarled traffic. Mayor Mark Boughton says for this semi-final game, they will deploy some extra police officers to lower Main Street.
Boughton says they want to encourage people to have a good time, but to not enjoy the World Cup at the expense of others. City officials have reached out to Green's Funeral Home about any wakes that might be taking place tonight, but also asked that people celebrating to respect that area.
Boughton says anyone seen operating or travelling in a vehicle in an unsafe manner will be ticketed. Some of what's been seen include people on the roofs or hoods of vehicles. Cars will also be towed.
