We are on the driver’s side

We are on the driver’s side
Editorial cartoon by Jason D. Cox Parking around campus is an all too familiar gripe among University of La Verne students and staff members, but another thing that drivers have to endure is the fact that students, and other pedestrians, do not know how to use a crosswalk.
