Lida Ryan, pharmacy graduate stu-
dent. said she was ticketed on numerous
occasions when she went to Meacham
Auditorium in Oklahoma Memorial 1’nion
or visiting friends at the dorms.
In order to get the ticket waived. Ryan,
who had a current Health Sciences Center
parking pass at the time the tickets were <
issued, would have to make a second trip to
Norman during business hours, she said.
Ryan said these follow-up trips were I
often difficult tasks because she was in

would waive the ticket, but she ended up
having to pay the full amount. *

Mariah said. “It felt pretty unfair to me."
