You might have noticed something different a few days ago when pulling into the school parking lot. Something yellow. Something straight. Something that looks suspiciously like repainted parking spots.

That’s right! Students returned to school on Monday morning to ooh and aah in wonder at the gift the parking lot fairy left overnight. Now you don't have to take a wild guess when whipping your car into a spot that could or could not be a parking spot.

Central students are facing a constant Battle Royale for parking spots in the morning, and as a driver who usually parks in the grass, it’s heartening to see that improvements are being made. Of course, the ultimate improvement would be an expansion of the parking lot, but for now I'm satisfied that stepsare being taken to make parking easier for young, inexperienced, and usually stupid student drivers.

The only downside is that there is now no excuse for not parking inside of the space you choose. The single space. (Toyota Corolla owner, I'm looking at you.)
