Most students at universities are facing many difficulties and one of these difficulties is parking problems. Parking space is one of the extremely important issues for all automobile users.

Also they are forced to park in no parking zone to avoid being late for class and taking the risk of having to pay parking violation fines.

As an example, one day I came late to the university and I spent 20 minutes driving around looking for a car parking space and it was difficult to find one because there were few cars parked in no parking zone.
