Letter to the Editor: Ticket or free parking

At the ACCD colleges, students and employees are required to purchase a $50 hangtag to park in designated lots.
I'm not sure how it is at the other colleges, but at St. Philip's College, anyone seems to be able to park anywhere without consequences.
I spent my $50 on my permit, yet every day, parked in the faculty/staff lot, there are numerous student vehicles, other faculty/staff vehicles with expired permits, vehicles with no permits, and some days, a vehicle with no current license plate tag, inspection sticker or hangtag.
Yet again, no consequences.
If district police do not want to write tickets for parking illegally, then please, either get rid of paid parking altogether or hire a third-party vendor to issue tickets.
It isn't fair to all of us who pay our hard-earned money to park legally, only to find others get away without ever spending a penny for parking.
