Oceanside High School has, for some time, provided upper class students with the ability to drive a car the opportunity to park said car within three parking lots on the grounds of Oceanside High School.

The 'Third Lot', previously used by students, has now been reassigned by administration for use by members of the faculty only. This decision by administration is not only self serving but also detrimental to the well being of students, as well as others commuting through the neighborhood.

In previous years there was already a shortage of parking spots compared to the number of drivers, but with the removal of a number of spots, students will be forced to park on the streets more than ever, as well as be forced to receive rides from parents or other adults.

More rides being provided by parents and other adults will lead to increased congestion on the roads near the school.

More congestion leads to a direct increase in travel time when traveling anywhere near the school, as well as increased danger for pedestrians, both students and others alike.

In closing, the reduction of the number of student parking spots may be beneficial to the school for faculty members, but students who the school professes to keep their top priority would be put into increased danger. Therefore the upper classes of Oceanside High School believe it would be in the best interest of the community in its entirety to return the third lot to student parking or provide additional parking in another area on the grounds.
