According to today’s front page story, businesses around campus

have been dealing with students parking in their lots. The manager

from the Holiday Inn contacted The Rocky Mountain Collegian

informing us that the hotel was going to start towing student cars.

He was also willing to hold off the towing until the paper

published the story.

Woody’s manager has even allowed students to park cars in his

lot until the restaurant opens at 11 a.m.

It would be easy for these mangers to just start towing cars,

they have every right to, but rather took the initiative to find

outlets to let students know that if they do continue parking on

their premises, their car can be towed.

We all know of the problem CSU has with parking. At times it

seems the odds are better at winning the lottery than there are at

finding a parking spot, but students need to respect the businesses

around campus enough not to park on private property.

The Holiday Inn manager even suggested coming in and asking to

park rather than just parking there without permission, risking a

hefty towing fine.

Though we feel students should be responsible for their actions,

we think the way these managers approached the problem was

conducive and helpful to the situation.
