Proceed with caution in P3 parking structure

October 6, 2016

Hundreds of faculty and staff park every day in the Taubman South (P3) parking structure. Many parkers have been observed driving too fast for a busy and crowded structure, especially when descending the structure. UMHS is concerned about the safety of vehicle operators and pedestrians in these conditions. While traveling in that structure, please drive at a modest speed and take great caution, especially when approaching intersections within the structure. Please also be on the lookout for other vehicles and pedestrians.Thank you for your cooperation as we make UMHS safe for everyone!Website: http://pts.umich.edu/
