Suzanne Williams, Sharon Brown and Steve Sparks (Parking Operations & Campus Access Management) presented “Parkaholics Anonymous: a 12 Step Intervention” at the Carolinas Parking Association (CPA) conference in Wilmington, NC, Oct. 27. The CPA is a professional organization affiliated with the International Parking Institute (IPI). The theme of the 25th annual conference was “Making the Difference” featuring programs showcasing projects and case studies demonstrating positive differences made in parking and transportation operations. The UNCG delegation shared their successful experiences utilizing Transporation Demand Management programs to facilitate campus access while reducing congestion and demand for parking. Acknowledgements to Guy Sanders (Housing & Residence Life) for coining the term “parkaholic” to categorize parking ticket repeat offenders and drivers addicted to the convenience of single occupancy vehicles.
