SECAUCUS - Super Bowl XLVIII officials are getting ready for rowdy fans, beefing up safety requirements at hotels and local venues.

Hotel guests will be required to show photo IDs.

The Secaucus Mayor Michael Gonnelli says the city has a plan to help them resolve problems with out-of-town guests quickly through special court sessions on the Monday after the Super Bowl.

"So the folks that are looking to get out of Dodge before they jump on their planes or buses or that train are going to have to appear here in municipal court," Gonnelli says.

Another measure requires events with 350 or more guests to register with the city to help police and fire departments determine where resources are needed.

Mayor Gonnelli predicts the city will see more than 10,000 visitors.
