End road-rage at De Anza College!! (Cupertino, CA)
Approximately 25,000 students sign up for Fall classes at De Anza College in Cupertino every year. These students, reside all over the Bay Area, from Oakland to Gilroy, and the majority of these students commute to and from the college campus in a car or motorcycle. We as students have enough stress in our lives to not have to worry about our car or motorcycle being destroyed, stripped, or stolen while we are in class. Many of us are on the brink of financial and psychological collapse as it is. Many of us are not offered nor can afford double-coverage auto insurance. If we spent our life savings on used Honda Civic, and it is totaled in the Flint Center parking lot a week later, what the hell are we left to do! Imagine how we feel when after a tough day in class, we return to where our car was parked, to find it has been broken into, or been involved in a hit-and-run accident. What if it is gone all together Put yourselves in our shoes, and do the right thing - get surviellence cameras installed in the parking lots. It will stop crime in its tracks and be one less thing to worry about at school for those of us who drive there. We would gladly pay some kind of camera tax on our parking passes rather than spending $400 every month on a new car stereo and driver-side window.
