As Michigan’s weather is starting to hit and more student at Howell are getting their licenses throughout the year, Howell High School’s parking lots are getting even crazier to get in and out of before and after school. Students make their own parking spots, don’t park in the lines or are driving huge cars that don’t fit in the parking spaces. This year alone, there have been two accidents in the parking lots and more than enough accidents that have almost happened because people don’t watch where they’re going.
