PSU gives too many tickets. This is just a way to get more money out of the students!

April 16th, 2010 by Michael

To the person who gets citations for parking contrary to PSU rules, this may seem to be the case. But not to the person who can’t park in his or her own lot because somebody else parked there illegally.

Parking enforcement is something we have to do, not something we do to generate funding for the University. Clearly, parking is a problem everywhere. In order to be fair to everyone, enforcement is the only reasonable option. If everyone had the proper permit and parked in the appropriate lot, we would not have to issue parking citations. Unfortunately some people choose, for whatever reason, to violate the rules and this complicates the parking situation for everyone. Ask the student or faculty/staff member whose lot was so full of violators that they could not find a space this morning if University Police is enforcing parking regulations too strictly. You will get a much different answer than you will from the person who has received citations for parking illegally.
