Parking Nixed
Warns Neely
Traffic court chairman Dick
Neely Tuesday night issued a
warning to speech and drama stu
dents who have been parking in
the small area between Deady and
Villard Halls.
“This area was put in by a
requirement of the state fire mar
shal for protective purposes and
must be kept open at all times,”
Neely stated. “In the future tick
ets will be issued to violators, who
must also pay towing charges if
it becomes necessary to haul the
vehicle away.”
Neely’s warning came after the
first winter term session of the
student traffic court Tuesday eve
ning. A total of $8 in fines was
collected, with two students who
appeared being fined $1 each, four
$1 bail forfeitures and one $2 bail
Sentence was suspended in the
cases of four students found guilty
of violations.
The chairman also reminded new
students to register their cars
with the student court. Failure to
display a student registration
sticker is a violation in itself. Over
2000 cars are now on the court’s
rolls, Neely said.
