Omg Dan haha.. I think you make a fair point. Every school has parking problems. It's not as if there are open spots reserved for every student with a car, but it's not impossible to find spots. I live off campus and never have problems finding a spot when I come to campus.

SMU does not guarantee a spot to every student that purchases a parking permit. Parking spots function on convenience. The early bird gets his worm-or spot rather. Students constantly complain about never finding a parking spot. Even the students with the best permit (yellow for first-year women or Greeks living in the houses) have difficulty parking. Most will circle around a parking area three times before parking far away in a garage-especially freshmen males. During the day, the garages are packed, and you should consider yourself lucky if you get a spot on the rooftop (fifth level). And if you think you're slick and turn your flashers on briefly even though you're parked illegally, don't be surprised if you receive a ticket. Students receive more parking tickets than alcohol violations.
The easiest way to find a parking spot is to take a couple aspirin before you get in your car, and plan for about 30 minutes to find a spot if you live off campus. If you're parking in the garages, don't be dismayed if the sign reads "Lot Full," because it is never correct. Parking is a cinch for those students who have class at 8 a.m.
