Off-campus parking signs only add to the problem Stop! Don’t park on public streets! After determining that several off-campus parking signs were improperly placed, Cal State Long Beach University Police quickly removed them Tuesday. The signs, which read “Resident Parking Only. No Student Parking,” were deemed ur iew improper because the California Vehicle Code listed on them cannot be enforced on residential streets, according to CSULB University Chief of Police Fernando Solorzano. Although some of the signs were correctly placed in neighborhoods that prohibit student parking, some signs were left in neighborhoods with no such restrictions. “[The signs] are to deter students from parking in the neighborhood streets,” Solorzano said. “This was our effort to work with them and be a good neighbor.” According to Solorzano, University Police placed the signs on the residential streets at the request of Long Beach City Councilman Patrick O’Donnell. According to O’Donnell, a petition was brought to the city council by some residents who were affected by CSULB student parking congestion. “The restricted parking comes from the neighbors, not me,” O’Donnell said. What hasn’t been explained, however, is why an improper code was cited on the parking signs. While we are glad University Police removed the signs, we are upset that they were placed in some neighborhoods in the
Parking on streets where restrictions are clearly and fairly posted is one thing. Parking on streets with signs that warn stu-
dents of possible citations or towing is another. University Police’s placement of the the signs highlights a major problem that has plagued the university for years. The availability of parking, or lack thereof, has been a constant thorn in the side of CSULB students and residents in surrounding neighborhoods. Students look for parking in residential neighborhoods to avoid circling around the full parking lots on campus for a spot. On the other hand, numerous neighbors have complained about students blocking driveways and leaving trash in the streets, ac-
cording to Solorzano. Although the misplaced residential signs have been removed, we hope University Police will think twice before putting restrictive parking signs in public areas again. ferent ways to combat the ever-worsening parking situation on campus. There clearly aren’t enough parking spaces on campus to accommodate everyone. Prohibiting off-campus parking with misplaced signs won’t make the situation any better.
NASCAR cheating scandal ruins a once-famous sport’s credibility Actions at Saturday’s NASCAR race in Richmond, Va., have permanently cast a dark shadow on the sport. Michael Waltrip Racing team $300,000 for manipulating the outcome of Saturday’s race. According to ESPN, a late spinout and quesMichael Waltrip Racing was somehow implicated in stopping Ryan Newman from making NASCAR’s version of the postseason. by taking Martin Truex Jr. — the driver who benof the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

NASCAR President Mike Helton said to ESPN. “It’s a message from the league saying, ‘You can’t do this.’” NASCAR’s decision to come down hard on Michael Waltrip Racing cannot make up for the crime that was committed. The cheating situation came to light on Saturday after Ryan Newman lost the hane race at Richmond International Raceway. Newman, who had previously led the race, lost after one of Michael Waltrip Racing’s drivers, Clint Bowyer, spun out, according to ESPN. What made the spinout unusual was the recorded in-car conversation between Bowyer and his team. “Is your arm starting to hurt? I bet it’s hot in there. Itch it,” Bowyer’s crew chief said, ac-
cording to USA Today. Following the statement, Bowyer mysteriously spun out. Although Bowyer’s conversation with his crew chief was part of the reason for the suspension, a conversation with fellow teammate Brian Vickers was the “smoking gun.” According to ESPN, Vickers’ crew member promised him a ewell kiss after asking Vickers to pit unexpectedly. It was Vickers’ uncertainty about the situation, according to Helton, that led to the penalties. In all, Bowyer was allowed to keep his spot in the Chase, although he was docked 50 points, according to ESPN. Vickers was also docked 50 points for his actions. Although he did not directly participate in the events that led to his getting into the
postseason, Truex was ultimately kicked out of the Chase. As a fan, it is extremely disconcerting to see how Michael Waltrip Racing let down fans of a once-great sport. No matter how many times members of the Michael Waltrip Team apologize, nothing can be done to rectify the situation. Spinning out a driver is one thing. Conspiring to launch a teammate into the Chase by cheating is another. Moving forward, it is important that NASCAR like the events that transpired in Saturday’s race. Although this cheating incident was contained, there’s a chance that many other instances like it have gone unnoticed.
