M: That’s just ridiculous!
W: What is, Charley?
M: Look at this. They want to charge me for parking my bike on campus!
W: Hmm. Well, it seems like it’s for your safety. Didn’t Daniel have his bike stolen last month?
M: Yeah, but that’s not his fault. He locked it up.
W: But if it had been in one of these lots, it probably wouldn’t have been stolen.
M: If they had better security guards, it wouldn’t have been stolen either. Or they could put cameras next to the bicycle lots. I already pay enough money for books, food and tuition. I can’t afford this extra charge! It’s not fair!
W: They charge cars for parking on campus.
M: Yeah, they should. Cars cause pollution, and they take up too much space. We should be rewarded for riding bikes to school, not punished.
W: You could always park your bike off campus, and then walk to class.
