On Monday, the Ole Miss Department of Parking and Transportation announced changes to the parking policy on campus, which included ticketing drivers for backing into parking spaces. The change was announced as the department shifts from a permit system to a new license plate recognition software over the next two years. After receiving strong opposition to the announcement, the department has announced that they will not be implementing the new policy preventing drivers from backing into spaces.
The University will continue to implement the LPR system as scheduled but will adapt to the current parking regulations. The department’s statement on the matter can be read below.
