Traffic Appeals & Fines
The Traffic Appeals Panel, selected by the president and composed of faculty, staff and students, will be the sole body to hear appeals for traffic and parking violations. Written appeals MUST be submitted within five business days of the date of violation notice. Persons desiring to present an oral appeal before the panel must schedule an appointment within five business days of the violation notice. Written appeals may be filed with Parking Services located in Oak Grove Cottage, during normal business hours.
The nature of the traffic violation and fine will be noted on the ticket. Overdue fines will be deducted from payroll checks of students working on campus or charged to personal accounts.
Drivers receiving a maximum of five parking violation tickets or three moving violation tickets may have their privilege of operating a motor vehicle restricted or possibly removed for the remainder of the year. This includes immobilization (booting) or towing.
A student who is delinquent in payment of fines is subject to the following penalties:
- Ineligibility for subsequent semester registration
- Non-issuance of grades, transcripts or degrees
- Revocation of campus driving privileges
- Vehicle impoundment
- Further appropriate disciplinary action
The person in whose name the automobile is registered will be held responsible for all parking violations charged to that vehicle. The driver of a motor vehicle will be held responsible for any moving violations.
