Fines and Penalties:
Violations of parking and registration policies are reported to the Campus Safety Office according to procedures outlined in the Student Handbook.
Parking fine amounts:
Unless otherwise noted, all parking/registration fines-$25
Illegal use of designated Handicap parking-$60
Emergency access areas (fire hydrants, fire lanes, parking lot lanes, etc.)-$60
Ticket fines are to be paid within ten (10) business days of receiving a ticket. After that date, the penalty will incur an additional $10 and be placed on the student's account in the Business Office.
Ticket fines are paid in the Office of Student Affairs.
The Campus Safety Office strives to provide fair and consistent enforcement of the parking or registration rules for everyone's benefit. Occasionally, a ticket is issued in error. When this happens, the appeal process provides an opportunity to appeal the ticket.
The Office of Campus Safety provides an online-only appeals process for tickets. Ticket appeals must be submitted within five (5) calendar days of ticket issuance.
The fine will remain at the original rate until a decision has been made regarding the ticket status.
The person appealing the ticket must provide all information requested on the online form, and affirm that he/she has read the parking/registration section of the Student Handbook.
Once submitted, a Campus Safety official will review the appeal and issue a decision via email as soon as possible following receipt of the ticket appeal.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION BEFORE YOU FILE YOUR APPEAL:
Registrant and Driver Responsibility:
The vehicles of all employees and students of the college must properly display parking permits obtained directly from the office of Student Affairs.
The person driving the vehicle on campus is responsible for finding a legal parking space and for knowing the regulations which are available in the Student Handbook, or online at www.wbcoll.edu/parking, and/or www.wbcoll.edu/parkingmap.
However, the registered permit holder is responsible for any ticket issued to any vehicle in which the permit is displayed.
• Lack of space is not a valid reason for violating parking regulations.
• Fire lane, handicap zone, and red and yellow curb violations WILL NOT be voided!
Examples of Invalid Appeals:
• “I didn't see the sign.”
• “Others were parking there too.”
• “I was late.”
• “I could not find another parking space.”
• “There was no sign that said I couldn't park there.”
• “I only parked there a minute.”
• “I've always parked there and you never gave me a ticket before.”
• “Other cars parked there and they didn't get a ticket.”
• “I don't agree with the policy or regulation.”
• “I’m just picking someone up.” Or, “I’m just dropping someone off.”
Please review the parking rules and regulations located on this website. If you have further questions regarding the appeal process, phone the Office of Campus Safety at (870) 759-4161.
Ticket appeals WILL NOT be heard in the Campus Safety Office.
