Corral Street between Armstrong Street and University Boulevard turns into a parking lot prior to every home Javelina football game as people stop to enjoy tailgating and the football game. But the fact is, that same stretch of street has been designated a no parking zone for years.

 “That area has been a no parking zone for a long time,” said Lt. Hiram Perez of the University Police Department. “However, it has become a safety issue during football games. The street is too narrow and it would be impossible to get an emergency vehicle through the area on game days.”

 The housing construction site in the same area also is adding to the problem, he said.

It is for this reason that the Kingsville Police Department, who has jurisdiction in that area, will start issuing tickets or even towing away drivers who park along the street.
