Lift Restrictions on the Electric Car Parking Spots at UF Law

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


Dear UF Law students, faculty, alumni, and concerned friends and supporters of UF Law,

For years, the student body has lobbied the administration to create more parking opportunities for UF Law students and to ensure that non-law students do not park in the Levin Lot. Instead of hearing our concerns and remedying them, the administration, in conjunction with the Facilities and Sustainability Committee, has ACTIVELY ACTED AGAINST the interests of the student body by limiting the amount of parking with the installation of two restricted electric car charging stations. To park in these spots, you must 1) have an electric car, 2) charge your car while parked there, and 3) stay for no more than four hours. If you park in either of these spots and do not meet all three of these requirements, you will receive a $40 parking ticket. Putting restrictions on two spots may not seem like a big deal to the administration, but we need to show them that parking is a major crisis at UF Law. We need more spots, not less!

Please sign this petition to lift the restrictions on these charging spots. While the student body at large is supportive of UF Law's green initiatives, there is no reason these spots should be restricted. ANY UF Law student should be able to park in these spots without receiving a $40 ticket.

I have spoken with Dean Rosenbury about this issue, who has suggested I gather student input on this issue with the help of the Student Bar Association and present our findings to the Facilities and Sustainability Committee. If this petition gains significant support, I will work with SBA to ensure that the Facilities and Sustainability Committee 1) acts to immediately lift the restrictions on these two charging spots so any student can park there, and 2) begins efforts to increase parking opportunities for UF Law students.

Thank you for your consideration and support,

Bobby Desmond
