Violations & Penalties

Violations of the Marymount University Parking Rules and Regulations for faculty and staff include
  • parking in an area inappropriate for the permit that the vehicle bears
  • parking in a “Handicapped” space
  • parking in two spaces, wheels extended over white line
  • parking where there is no designated parking space
  • parking at Ballston while not on University business
  • parking in a “No Parking” area
  • parking in a fire lane
  • blocking the flow of traffic
  • speeding or reckless driving
  • parking in a “Visitor Reserved” space
  • parking in a coned or taped-off space
  • no permit or improperly displayed permit
  • failure to obey traffic direction
  • abuse of Guest Pass privilege
 
Violation tickets are placed on the windshields of vehicles violating the Parking Rules and Regulations. Each violation and its associated fine are marked on the Violation Ticket. Fines may be paid at the Cashier’s Office.

Some parking violations, such as parking in fire lanes or blocking the flow of traffic, are considered grave enough to endanger the University community and may result in a boot being placed on the violating vehicle or in the towing of the violating vehicle. Vehicles that are not identified by a University parking permit or a Guest Pass may be booted until identification is made.

Violations of the Parking Rules and Regulations may result in violation tickets, fines, immediate booting, or towing of the vehicle without prior notification to the vehicle’s owner.

The penalty fine for removal of a boot is $80 plus any violation fines that may be due. Failure to pay penalty fines for boot removal within three days of the violation ticket issue date may result in the violating vehicle being towed from Marymount University property. Should it be necessary to tow any vehicle from University property, the owner of the vehicle must assume the towing costs and any violation penalties incurred.

Any faculty or staff member wishing to appeal a parking violation ticket must submit an appeal form within seven days. Appeal forms are located in the ID and Parking Office in Ireton Hall, the Main Security Station, and at the Ballston Security Desk.

Marymount University assumes no responsibility for items stolen or damage done to vehicles on University property or in University-designated off-campus parking lots. Drivers should protect themselves by securing their vehicles at all times.
