Last updated: December 01, 2020
A. Enforcement. The University of Idaho (“University”) Parking Regulations are enforced at all times. All users of the parking system are responsible for observing parking regulations. Enforcement of parking regulations on dedicated streets, alleys and the campus walkway zone is under the joint jurisdiction of the Moscow Police Department (“MPD”) and Parking and Transportation Services (“PTS”) of the University.
B. Scope. Faculty, staff, students, and visitors of the University must pay to park a vehicle on the University campus. This can be done through the purchase and display of parking permits, which can be purchased from PTS, or through payment at meters and/or pay station lots.
C. Use of Departmental Budget.
C-1. Use of Budget Numbers. University employees cannot use a departmental budget number to pay for parking permits or parking citations issued to employees whose primary work location is on the UI Moscow campus. Use of a departmental budget number to pay for parking permits or citations issued to visitors to the Moscow campus is allowed. (rev. 12-13, 12-20)
C-2. Responsibility for Department Parking Fees. Payment of parking fees, to include permits and citations, issued and/or assigned to department accounts is the responsibility of the department, and a budget number may be used for payment of balances owed. Although each campus department is ultimately responsible for its own parking debt, as a matter of departmental internal policy, individuals may be required to pay for citations assigned to department accounts, that were issued to them while using a department-issued permit and/or operating a department-owned vehicle. (add. 12-13, ed. 12-20)
D. Parking Citations. Parking citations are issued to vehicles in violation of the University Parking Regulations.
D-1. Appeals. Citations may be appealed within 15 days from the date the citation was issued. All citation appeal decisions are made by the University Parking Committee (FSH 1640.66). After 15 days, citations may no longer be appealed and must be paid.
D-2. Unpaid Citations. Unpaid citations will be posted to student or employee accounts. Unpaid citations, or other charges, may result in:
(a) ineligibility to purchase a permit,
(b) a revoked permit,
(c) a hold being placed on a student’s record, affecting the ability to register for classes for the following semester and to receive a diploma,
(d) the charges being sent to a collection agency.
Vehicles containing multiple unpaid citations may be immobilized or impounded.
D-3. Vehicles Not Registered Through PTS. Vehicles that park on campus and are not registered through PTS may incur a plate search fee in addition to the fine amount of each citation received. This fee covers costs associated with identifying vehicle owners and accurately assessing fines owed.
D-4. Department-Purchased Parking Permits. Department-purchased parking permits must be used in accordance with the University Parking Regulations. Employees may not use department-purchased permits (departmental permit, service permit, delivery permit, or vendor permit) for personal use. These permits must be used only while conducting work-related business that requires mobility and the use of a vehicle. (ed. 12-13)
