On August 28th at 12 pm, no parking spots were available at at least 9 of 15 parking locations at the Webster Groves Webster University location. Commuters opted to park in marked off spots, clearly labeled not parking spots and guest-only spots in retaliation.
Students gave up on legal parking spots four days into the fall semester at Webster University. This type of disregard for laws and parking lines is usually not seen until at least the second week of classes. In 2011, this risky activity was not recorded until the third week of classes.
Parking is the third most recruited sport at Webster, behind Chess and Tennis. The competitive nature facilitates students and faculty bonding experiences outside of the classroom.
This inconvenienced me, I was unable to park in these already occupied illegal spots. I drove counter-clockwise around the campus and eventually found a spot in Parking Lot G.
Disgruntled Webster Groves citizens voted to outlaw Webster students parking in the region five years ago. Webster University took them to the Supreme Court, leading to the current initiative in place that keeps parking at a premium. Has it finally gone too far?
