Best Ways to Avoid Citations
Below are some of the most common ways in which to avoid a citation. In a perfect world, everyone who brings a vehicle on campus would purchase a parking permit and park only in those areas for which they are permitted.
- Parking regulations on this campus require that everyone who parks on campus properly display a valid, current parking permit.
- Parking on campus is by permit only, with the exception of the pay parking lot and garage. If you don't have a permit, do not park on campus.
- Become familiar with the locations in which your permit is valid and only park in those locations.
- Do not park in spaces designated for persons with disabilities unless you have the proper Disabled permit/license plate and an SFA permit. The university strongly supports the ADA and stiff fines are issued to cars parked illegally in these spaces.
- Be sure to properly display your permit. You will be issued a citation if the officer cannot see your permit. Instructions on how to display the permit are printed on the back.
- Any vehicle may park in a Loading Zone (LZ) for 15 minutes with its emergency flashers on to load/unload.
- Read and familiarize yourself with the Parking & Traffic Regulations.
- Always park with your right wheels to the curb, except when parking on a one-way road. Parking an automobile, on the wrong side of the street, creates a liability situation.
- Never park backwards in a diagonal space as this creates a safety issue.
