The parking fee angered a number of students, who crammed into nearby neighborhoods which had restricted parking. Many students were ticketed, resulting in this Hornet cartoon on October 8, 1976. At the start of each semester, the two policemen who patrolled the FC campus were writing an average of 150 tickets per day. Parking fines were raised from $5 to $25 dollars in 1978. Fullerton City officials were aware of the parking situation, and in 1975, constructed a 150-space parking lot on the corner of Lemon and Chapman Avenues, charged 25 cents to park, and also eliminated street parking on Chapman Avenue to speed up traffic.
