Arrow College and our bikes, compatible?

Here it comes. A new semester is about to start, and I've got some question I'd like you fellow riders to help me find answers.

I hope to illuminate parking problem by going there on my bike. It's just a regular community college, and of course they require us to have those parking permits (stickers) on vehicles.

Alright, here is the question: Where would you place that sticker??? It's pretty retarded, what can stop someone from peeling it off and putting inside the car?

Has anyone had experience dealing with it?

If you have any story related to the thread, throw it in!

What I would do is talk with the campus 'police' and say look, I paid for my permit, keep it with you, and show them if they ask. Or if you get 'ticketed' just put the sticker on the bike, take a picture, and show them, then take it off. Easy, just for of a pain if anyone asks.

I just had the parking services people put it on the file that I had a permit so whenever one of their "officers" tried to write me a ticket it would be flagged on the little computer thing they use to write tickets. When they entered my license plate into the system it told them that I had a permit and not to ticket it.

my campus had bike parking, as long as you parked in it they dint care if you had the sticker on it. The decals they have are to big to put on the tag, seen some put on the forks just under the upper triple.

lol, that's a good one!

Alright, seems like there isn't going to be a problem.

But just in general, has anyone's bike been vandalized?

I think enough people will realize no need to vandalize unless you take it to like a party or something like that. But during the day, people won't mess with it. In my experience anyways.
