SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The San Francisco 49ers are banning tailgating in the parking lot of Candlestick Park after games start, and any season ticket holders caught misbehaving on video will have their tickets revoked.
The moves announced Monday are in reaction to the violence that marred a weekend preseason NFL football game.
In addition, 49ers CEO Jed York says he will recommend to the NFL that the annual preseason game between the archrival 49ers and Oakland Raiders be put off next year.
San Francisco police, Mayor Ed Lee and 49ers officials also say police will set up DUI checkpoints near the stadium after all 49ers games and strictly forbid alcohol consumption then.
Two men were seriously injured during and after Saturday's game, including a 24-year-old man who was shot several times in the stomach. Both were upgraded to fair condition Monday.
