This year was a record year for Bishop Kelley High School. No, not for any sports or academics like that, but for most fender benders in the parking lots. Just this year there has been 5 reported accidents in the senior and main parking lots.

Carson Latham (10) just began driving and is overwhelmed by the last 30 seconds of his drive to school – the parking lot.

“I just started driving 2 weeks ago and I have already seen one small accident right in the junior lot, this makes me scared to drive my car! There is just too much traffic in such a tight parking lot.” Latham said.

Many students believe the parking lot needs to be reconstructed to have more room to prevent fender benders.  Jake Elliott (10) worries about the flow of traffic in the lots.

“I really think they need to do something about the parking lot and that tiny gate for everyone to come in and out of each day, its very difficult to squeeze through tight spots and having a bunch of new drivers like myself doesn’t make it better,” Elliott said.

All accidents are recorded with Mr Pratt as he helps the students in the incident and walks them through the steps of what they have to do. He also believes a reconstruction in the future would be a good idea.

“The parking lot has come to be a struggle for some student drivers especially these last few years we have had more accidents than ever, I believe a reconstruction of the parking lot in the future wouldn’t be a bad idea,” Pratt said

Overall many of the student drivers think a reconstruction of the parking lot would be very necessary as it would reduce the number of accidents and would just be easier to maneuver in.
