In order to find parking at Cerritos College one must go through a mission of survival. The parking lot security staff at Cerritos need to work on regulating the parking lot traffic instead of only focusing on giving out parking tickets.

Where is the parking lot security you may be asking? Well, they’re too busy riding around golf carts ignoring this mess or chatting up about their weekend plans.

There are certain things one person must look out for when finding parking and that is the multiple cars blocking traffic.

One of the most annoying habits is when someone decides to put their car in park in the middle of the lane and patiently wait for a spot.

When anyone does that traffic is being blocked and cars need to go around them causing even more traffic.

It is an inconvenience to all drivers, there is no sign that allows drivers to stop in the middle of the lane.

Moving on to the next problem, unaware drivers. There is always that one person who is driving in the wrong lane, texting or doing whatever their heart pleases. Security needs to keep an eye out for these type of drivers.

There has been plenty incidents where a person has almost been rear-ended or t-boned by someone not paying attention.

The worst drivers of them all are the speed racers. Some drivers think it’s okay to drive 40 mph down a lane.

Driving this speed is not okay, someone can be seriously injured if they weren’t already paying attention crossing through traffic.

To top it all off there are the people who drive with road rage. These people will honk endlessly, flip off drivers and steal a parking spot that someone waited patiently for.

There has been times where these actions resulted into something physical. No one is looking for a fight at school, let alone the school parking lot.

Although no one has witnessed a physical fight verbal fights happen daily This type of behavior should not be allowed and the parking staff is never present to solve the issue.

The only thing the security staff worries about are the parking permits. It’s funny because they are called “security” for a reason.

The definition of security is, “the state of being free from danger.” They are certainly not doing their job well enough since all these things happen daily.

Security needs to do a better job to control the traffic, especially during busy school times.
