College police reinforces parking rules

Imagine this scenario: You’re a staff or faculty member here at City College. You’re trying to get into your designated parking space, and you can’t because someone is dropping off or waiting for a student, and that person’s car is parked in your spot. Annoying isn’t it?

Even more annoyed are the students waiting in line for the staff person to arrive behind the counter to answer their financial aid questions or for their professor to arrive so class can start. Many students are affected when staff and faculty are late because there are no staff parking spaces open.

Despite signs informing drivers that certain parking lots on campus are for staff and faculty only, many choose to ignore them.

As a result, earlier this month the Los Rios Community College Police Department began reinforcing the rules of a no drop-off zone for students. Parking enforcement officers have been stationed in these zones to make sure that the rules are being observed.
Stepped-up enforcement will be going on for the rest of the semester, according to the Los Rios Police.

“I think this is a great improvement,” said City College student Matthew Bangoy. “I have professors who get really frustrated when their designated parking space is used as a drop-off zone.”

“The campaign has been very effective,” said Police Sergeant Brian Washington.
“Most people have been pretty compliant.”

According to Washington, college police officers have been issuing warnings to those caught dropping off students in the no drop-off zones and penalizing repeat offenders with citations.

“We can’t catch everybody, but we are doing our best job,” Washington said.
The reinforcement of the no drop-off rules has even found support among parents who drive their children to campus.

“I find the new procedure to be a great innovative idea,” said Maria Martinez, a mother who drops off her daughter and son at City College. “I see a lot of people just get in there to drop someone off and not care about what the spot is actually used for.”
