Result n/a
Remarks FAILED - Considered a bad idea because it is infeasible to impede the motion of vehicles during the time periods requested.
Whereas UT Arlington has a large student body; and
Whereas Most if not all of these students move through pedestrian areas of campus to get to their classes; and
Whereas Trucks and other vehicles move through these same pedestrian areas; and
Whereas The posibility of injury to a pedestrian exists; and
Whereas One goal of UT Arlington's master plan is to make the campus more pedestrian friendly.
Be It Further Resolved That Trucks, mules, and other vehicles be prohibited movement and access inside pedestrian areas of campus during the ten minutes preceding every hour during the hours of 8:00 am and 2:00 pm Monday through Friday.
