I take the River Road to the Levee Lot normally. I was in traffic on the River road for an hour and a half, from 11:15 to 12:45. The Levee Lot was full and I was the last car allowed to enter the new lot across from the new Alex Box.
The problem is as stated earlier, reduction of free parking spaces on campus and parking spaces being used by folks who only tailgate.
I was able to park, then walk and meet my usual tailgate crew in the Levee Lot. I saw literally 75 or 80 empty spaces during my walk. People tend to park efficiently if given the opportunity. The new parking police are not very good as using all the space possible when directing drivers, IMHO.
