INDIANAPOLIS — People living in the Butler-Tarkington neighborhood are frustrated with students parking in front of their homes, but some students say they don’t know those spots are off-limits.
Signs are posted on streets near Butler University’s campus notifying students and faculty that unless they live in the neighborhood and have a permit, they are not allowed to park on residential streets.
“It does seem a little odd to me that you cannot park on a public street,” Krista Smith said.
Smith lives on Buckingham Drive in Butler-Tarkington. Her son’s friend has parked on her street for years, but now that he attends Butler University, he recently got a ticket.
