Car Park 8: Roped off?!

So I arrived to park in CP8 this morning as usual, yet was shocked to discover that a whole row of bays on the ground floor had been roped off – though with 3 cars inside the barrier. No sign to explain why this had happened (over night I'd assume). So whilst I was in the gym I formulated some ideas:

1) Car parking patrols had run out of clamps for naughty overnight parkers and hoped a thin piece of tape would stop them removing the car.

2) By decreasing the apparent parking areas more people would be forced to park "university illegally" and be clamped, hence increasing the revenue streaming for the parking patrols

3) That the area behind the tape wasn't safe to park in and three naughty scamps just ignored the tape.

4) Student prank (though not up to their usual high standards I'm sure)

5) A half hearted response to some kind of threat from one of the cars in question…

I wonder if the day will shed any further light on this one…

    The roping off of a car-park usually means one of three things;

    • your department is about to be demolished
    • it's now a temporary coach-park
    • Security is having a 'cone-and-hi-vis-ribbon-deployment' training day

  2. I hope it's not about to go – I left my car on the upper floors!

    In my experience this usually means that some cheeky department (usually Warwick Conferences) has decided that they are more important than everybody else and that consequently they need to save some parking spaces for people who are visiting them.
