ASU students react to game day parking changes

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - On Thursday, the Montgomery Police Department announced some parking changes that will be made during all Alabama State University home football games.

“If I wanted to go get something to eat or just step off campus for a while during home football games, I couldn’t do that without having to walk back," Sarai Cooper, an ASU student, said. “Let’s say I wanted to go to the store, or something like that before the game, I would have to walk with my groceries back.”

Beginning on Saturday, September 21, motorists will not be allowed to park on the following streets around ASU’s campus:

• Grove Street, between Hall Street and South Union

• Lake Street, between Forest Avenue and South Union

• North University Drive, between South Union and the ASU Stadium

• Saint James Street

In addition, effective Friday, Sept. 20, motorists will no longer be allowed to park on Hutchison Street.

The parking ban will be enforced all day during home football games, not just during game hours. The ban will be strictly enforced, and violators’ vehicles will be towed.
