8VAC115-10-420. Appeals.

A. Campus parking citations are treated as minor infractions of college regulations with the right of appeal as stated in the Student Handbook. The operation of a motor vehicle on the campus constitutes implied consent for college parking violations to be handled through written appeals made to the Traffic Appeals Board. The Traffic Appeals Board is, by Presidential appointment, the highest authority on campus in parking matters and consists of members from all college constituencies.

B. The board does not look favorably upon the following appeals:

No decal/failure to buy additional decal

No spaces available

Bad weather/didn't want to walk

Usually park off campus

Didn't have time to get a decal

Someone else driving my vehicle

Residents parked in day spaces

Day students parked in resident spaces

Students in faculty/staff spaces

Nonpayment of past due fines may not entitle students to register for and attend classes.
