The good .audi Ibadl abouuli: paFkiimg at UNC
Freshmen still can not
and the future does not
By RON CRAWFORD
Chapel Hill's parking problem
is not likely to go away soon,
campus officials say, and the big
losers again this year are the
"Freshmen have been prohi
bited from parking for at least six
years." said Mary Clayton, UNC's
director of transportation. And,
because of limited parking space,
there's no end to the ban in sight.
"There's certainly no immediate
relief in the sense that we're not
building more parking except in
the fringe lots," Clayton said.
"There's only so much space.
There's a fixed limit. When land's
at a premium, buildings are going
to get priority over parking."

The campus will lose 350 park
ing spaces to construction this
year, she said.
Clayton said the Traffic and
Parking Office handles about
15,000 requests for parking space
a year. But the campus only has
about 11,000 parking spaces.
Because of the great demand,
parking on campus is regulated by
a permit system. Each lot requires
a specific permit that must be
purchased at the Traffic and
Parking Office and displayed at all
Most freshmen who are caught
parking on campus are fined $10
for parking without a permit, said
Mary Fox, UNC's parking control
coordinator. Student parkers
discovered to be freshmen are
fined an additional $25.
Anyone who receives three or
more violations is considered a
repeat violator, said Fox. After the
third violation, the violator's car
will be towed.
Students who wish to purchase
permits should register during the
preceding spring semester, said
Clayton, but even then, they are
not assured of getting a permit.
Graduate students get first priority
for permits, followed by seniors,
juniors and sophomores. Because
of this hierarchy, which is set by
the student government, many
sophomores don't get permits, said
The University does make
exceptions in certain cases, how
ever. If a freshman feels he has
a compelling reason to have a car
on campus, he can apply for a
waiver at the traffic office.
- Acceptable reasons for granting
students waivers include employ
ment at home, which must be
verified by an employer; military
obligations, such as Army
reserves; and medical reasons.
Applications for waivers on the
basis of medical reasons must
include a letter from a physician.

WE'RE FIGHTING FOR
A chance for a permit
possible at registration
By TAMERA MAJORS
Students who did not get cam
pus parking permits in the spring
may still have a chance when they
return to school.
All available permits will be for
sale at registration in Fetzer Gym
in August, according to Mary
Clayton, director of transporta
tion with University Police.
"Access permit distribution
used to be held separately from
registration, but this year the two
will be done together," Clayton
said. "We don't know the exact
number of permits that we will
have for sale at that time, but we
usually have about 300 available."
There are approximately 1 1,000
parking spaces on the UNC cam
pus and about one-third of those
go to students. The other portion
is for faculty, staff and visitors.
Prices range for these spaces
from $10 to $114.75 for an aca
The least expensive is P Lot,
which is located down Airport Rd.
at the Horace Williams Airport.
Students who buy this permit for
$10 also receive a free bus pass
to get them to campus.
For a spot around the residence
halls, students can expect to pay
around $80. Law students or
medical students who may park
in employee zones must pay a little
over $100 for their spaces.
The number of spaces allotted
for the 1987-88 year is about 350

"The University has grown
greatly and land is a premium for

lots are flat and cemented and

But until such advancements are
made in parking, students must
continue to struggle for a spot.
Clayton encourgages students
who fail to get a permit ,at reg
istration to check with the parking
office in the basement of the
Campus Y building for permits
that have been turned back in.
"Permits are turned in that go
unused," Clayton said. "During
the first week after Labor Day we
have permits returned and
other students who want them
have already given up.
"We encourage people to check
back because there are changes
throughout the semester. We post
a list of available spaces by 4 p.m.
each Monday. Those spaces will
be distributed the following morn
ing beginning at 7:30 a.m."
If a student's need for a parking
permit meets the hardship qual

Government, then a student may
