Don’t let your need for a parking spot get you a ticket.
Here are some basic ways to get better parking that don’t involve parking in the grass or the motorcycle parking spot:
-Plan ahead. Plan to get at Pierce just as other classes get out. For example, if you have a 10 a.m. class, get to the parking lot at 9:50 a.m. If you have class at 5 p.m., drive in at 4:25 p.m.
-Hybrid spots. If you have a hybrid or low emission car, you could be parking in one of the many empty hybrid parking spots found in the B parking lot.
-Carpool parking. If you carpool, you can park in the carpool parking spots found in the A and B parking lots. All you have to do is go to the security office and get a carpool parking pass. Even if you don’t carpool, make a schedule with friends or classmates so you can carpool. It is worth the good parking spot, and it’s good for the environment.
-Don’t disobey parking lot rules. Campus security is strict about its parking rules. Only park in a carpool spot if you have a carpool pass and only park hybrids in the hybrid spots. It can be difficult to find parking at Pierce but having to walk further to class is a lesser price to pay than the price of a ticket.
-Repeal tickets. If you feel you wrongfully got a ticket, you have five working days to go to the security office and repeal your ticket. If you choose to not repeal it, pay your ticket within five days or Pierce College could impound your car.
