As stated on their website:
It is allowed again to accompany passengers into the departures hall. However, just like passengers, you will first have to go through a pre-screening in the pre-check structures in front of the departures hall.

A statement on the website simply isn't enough, the majority of people don't check the website before they go to the airport to pick someone up.
They should post clear signs in the parking towers, telling people who are picking someone up to go through departures and then take the escalator down to arrivals.

Sometimes people "don't look further then the length of their nose", to say it in Louis Van Gaal-mode.
Nothing to do with people 'not being clever'. If it's not clearly signposted in the parking buildings most people won't know, and will simply do what they see others doing, i.e. wait outside. If the majority of people don't find their way to some place, then it's not becaus they're dumb, it's because you didn't inform them enough.
Put signs up, and you will RAPIDLY see the number of people waiting outside decline, and businesses in the arrivals area which are now suffering badly will equally rapidly see their revenue stream liven up again. No idea what's keeping BRU management so long to do this while those businesses are losing money hand over fist.
