TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -
The University of Alabama has a reward for students who park the right way. The "positive parking incentive program" actually gives some students cash.
Student Molly Atherton say it's not always easy for her to find a place to park at the university.
"I've got plenty of tickets and I know my mom doesn't like to see these on my student account," Atherton said.
That's why the univeristy is not only adding parking spaces, but 100 more reasons why students should park in the right place. This past year, the university awarded ten $100 positive parking incentive scholarships to students who didn't get a parking ticket or warning.
The school issued about 1,300 more parking permits than there were spaces for students to park in January. But officials and others say it's unlikely all those drivers would be on campus at the same time.
"They have spots for everyone who has a parking pass. They don't ever oversell their spots. So if you buy a parking pass, there should be a parking spot for you when you get on campus," Gina Johnson with UA Support Services said.
Students say adding parking makes it less likely they'd get a ticket.
"I think another parking deck or something will probably be beneficial," student Melinda Tilley said.
