A South Florida car dealership is getting slammed online for parking some of its cars in Florida State University (FSU) garages during Hurricane Irma — and taking spaces away from students.
Brand new cars from Napleton Infiniti filled spots in a covered campus garage during the storm while others searched for open spots on Sunday.
Locals were not impressed.
FSU let car dealerships park in our on campus garages. Barely any spots for students to park their cars during the storm. Ridiculous.

Florida State University is allowing students to park on any floor of campus parking garages during #Irma. TIP: Don’t park on the top floor!

However, the abundance of brand new cars in the garage left students and residents less than satisfied. They blasted the dealership on Yelp and social media.
In fact comments flooded the dealership’s page.
It is unclear whether the university knew about the dealership’s plans in advance, but they have since responded, tweeting out a message on Sunday night that the vehicles had been removed from the campus.
We has addressed the matter. The vehicles have been removed.

It is also not clear if all of the dealership vehicles have actually been taken out of the garages. Mashable has reached out to Florida State University and Napleton Infiniti for comment.
