Violations and Fines

Parking & Transportation is introducing an Escalation Based System for citations starting July 1, 2013. This means that if you receive the same citation more than once per fiscal year (July 1 - June 30), the fine will increase with each citation you receive. This new process is being implemented to reduce the number of patrons that park without valid credentials or occupy metered spaces for long periods after meters have expired. Click here to learn more and get tips for avoid citations.

Second Offense: +10.00 $35+$10 = $45.00
Third Offense: +25.00 $35+25 = $60.00
Fourth Offense: +75.00 $35+75 = $110.00
