Poor Planning Revealed
All in all, the report revealed
much poor planning on the part
of the people concerned who said
where racks should be put up. In
many instances students have
legitimate complaints when theyj
receive tickets. In other situa-
tions, the tickets are rightfully
given.
It would be much cheaper for

put inem in places inaccessw e
and inconvenient to the student
body.
Also, if racks are on one side
of a building and students enter
from another, these racks should
be moved to the other side. It is
not a matter of students too
"stuck up" to park in places in-
convenient.
But if a student has an 8 a.m.
class at the Frieze Building and'
a 9 a.m. lecture at Angell Hall,
the student must hurry to get to
the lecture on time, and parking
around a corner of a building
may lose time during which he
would be on his way to the lec-
ture.

There are also enough racks. the University to merely move
according to the survey, at the racks than to buy new ones and
