Practice vs. theory

A couple weeks ago I wrote about the new Dodger Stadium parking lot plan.

I was thinking about buying tickets for a Dodger game soon, but maybe I should wait…

There was little that appeared orderly about the Dodgers’ controlled zone parking, which was designed to avoid the free-for-all approach of years past by filtering cars from the stadium’s four gates into specified parking areas.

The most common complaints involved longer than usual waits, parking spots far from the seats and unnecessary micromanagement.

Martha Ustick of Long Beach, a 27-year season-ticket holder, called it “the worst parking fiasco I’ve ever seen.” Ustick said the line before the game was so backed up that she had to park near an elementary school well outside the stadium grounds for fear that she would miss the first few innings.
