Many students took advantage of the HOV lanes that criss-cross the city.

Students paid large fees to park seemingly miles away from class. "I detest parking it's ridiculous to pay $60 a year and have to park in the mud by the stadium," said Senior Elementary Education Major Adina Doan. Parking is not the only gripe students seem to have. There was a long list of commuting complaints most due to UH being located in the middle of a large metropolitan city. "Let's see what we got, there's the traffic, we got the bad roads on Cullen, you have to be prepared for class an hour ahead of time. Commuting is just a bitch," said Junior Pre-Law History Major Shane Scott. "UH cops don't check the cars parked out that far," Sophomore Chris Cooper learned to cope while some have created creative solutions to the parking problem. Though they might not all be legal. "I park in the outlying lots so I don't have to pay for a parking sticker. UH cops don't check the cars parked out that far. Then I ride my bicycle which I keep in the back of my truck to my classes," said Sophomore Chris Cooper. Students have been suggesting that a parking garage would solve many of the parkingproblems, but UH administrators complain that a garage would cost too much and would require extra security. Students may get their wish eventually, as UH has planned on such a garage for Holman Street. Estimated time of completion?

Many students found it was easier to park in the outlying parking lots and bike-or take the bus across campus. Photo by Jason Marchand. Commuters Fight for Limited Parking Spaces As the year progressed it seemed that parking became harder to find and if you weren't here at 7 a.m. you never found a parking space unless you circled the lot for about 10- 15 minutes. Many students feet that the school needed to find a solution to the growing demand for parking space and many had their own ideas on how to solve it. " I think one way is to have parking slots for every single student that applies for a parking permit. On the decal there would be a number designating the spot where the student will park. The closer of a parking space he wants the more expensive the parking decal will be," said Business Major Sophomore Dan Lam . Other students have devised there own plan with dealing with the parking trauma. "My problem was solved when we found out that the Faculty lot would open with any credit card. So far it's only worked in lot 18, but that lot fills pretty fast. That trick has allowed me to get to class on time alot this semester," said Senior Carole Haddon- Robertson. Still others just leave the driving to someone else. "I usually hitch a ride or take the bus then I don't have to worry about getting in a wreck, paying for insurance and I don't have to pay for parking," said Junior Music Performance Major Michael Lawrence.- JoAnn Stephens Student Life Alternative Parking # 13
