Group Puts Brakes on Freshman Car Ban

CORVALLIS, Ore. — Oregon State freshmen still have the green light to drive their cars to college, come fall.

With enrollment increasing, residents are concerned about traffic and parking issues in town. A Corvallis Collaboration group proposed banning freshmen from having cars, but Tuesday night members decided to first consider all their options.

“It seemed premature to the group to really undergo a detailed assessment of a policy, let alone act on it, without further information about how the recommendations we’ve already made have had some impact,” said Brandon Trelstad, OSU Sustainability Coordinator and member of the Parking and Traffic Work Group.

Earlier this year, the committee recommended parking districts around the university. If that goes into effect, cars would only be able to park for two hours around campus unless they have a special permit.

    The fact that such a thing was even under consideration is a slap in the face to the United States Constitution. What is the world are students being “taught” at OSU that they are even considering trampling on the rights of some students just because they are freshmen: fascism?
