OU Parking Administration is phasing in a new enforcement device this semester as an alternative to towing.

The device is called the Barnacle, and the administration plans to begin implementation next Tuesday. Currently, OU is renting five units of the device.

Kris Glenn, OU’s director of Parking Administration, said the Barnacle is an effort to use new technology to reduce towing, which can be costly and inconvenient to motorists.
