(d) Parking fees as approved by the chancellor, or designee, shall be charged for motor vehicles within designated lots consistent with applicable collective bargaining agreements and in accordance with guidelines established by the chancellor or designee. Such guidelines shall provide that the determination of the amount of the fee be substantially based on an analysis of the costs attributable to the operation and maintenance of the parking facilities owned and operated by the College at Fredonia.

(e) Parking meter zones will be established in designated lots. A fee, as approved by the chancellor, or designee, will be charged. Such approval will be in accordance with guidelines established by the chancellor or designee which provide that the amount of the fee will be substantially based on an analysis of the costs attributable to the operation and maintenance of the parking meters on the premises of the State University College at Fredonia.

§ 570.2 Traffic.

(a) Speed limit. No person shall drive a vehicle on university streets, roads, or highways at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the conditions and having regard for the actual and potential hazards then existing, but in no event shall a person drive a vehicle in excess of 30 miles per hour unless a different speed is authorized and indicated by the university.

(b) No parking on roadways, fire lanes, fire hydrants, sidewalks, and emergency zones. No person shall park a vehicle on the premises of the university in such manner as to interfere with the use of a fire hydrant, fire lane (roadway), or other emergency zone, or create any other hazard or unreasonably interfere with the free and proper use of a roadway or pedestrian way. Loading areas and reserved spaces are emergency zones. Any vehicle illegally parked in the areas designated is subject to ticketing and towing at the owner's expense. A service fee for towing will be charged.

(c) Applicable laws and orders. The Vehicle and Traffic Law shall govern vehicular and pedestrian traffic and parking upon the streets, roads, emergency zones and sidewalks of the State University College at Fredonia.

The west exit from Jewett Hall parking lot #13 will also be barricaded. Enforcement for violations will be under the Vehicle and Traffic Law requiring appearance before the local magistrate.

§ 570.3 Parking areas.

(a) Definition. For the purposes of this Part, a parking area is defined as a surface with painted lines delineating the space for each motor vehicle and the service aisles leading to the spaces.

(b) Time limits for parking.

(2) Snow removal regulations will be in effect from Saturday after Thanksgiving until April first unless modified. These snow regulations prohibit open overnight parking (1 a.m. to 7 a.m.) seven days a week even if classes do not meet the following day. Parking overnight during snow removal time is permitted only in the lots and areas named above seven nights a week and is permitted in all of the Nixon-Chautauqua lot No. 16 between 1:00 a.m. Saturday and 1:00 a.m. Monday.

(c) Violations and fines. Violations of the campus regulations governing parking areas shall include, but not be limited to, the following:

The fine for each parking violation in a campus lot is ten dollars and is payable at the business office, Maytum Hall, within seven days. Any second and subsequent violations will be assessed at $15. Any protest must be registered with the hearing board (see section 570.4 of this Part). Any vehicle parked in violation of these regulations may be removed or towed away at the owner's expense. A vehicle immobilizer may be affixed at the owner's expense by the department of public safety to a vehicle parked in violation of these regulations where there is a need for prompt seizure of such vehicle after reasonable efforts to learn the name and address of the owner. The fee for removal of such equipment shall be an amount approved by the chancellor or his designee. Within seven days of violation, payment must be made in person or by mail to Cashier, Third Floor, Maytum Hall. Payment may also be made or request for a hearing by filing a written "notice of complaint" in person at the public safety office. Any vehicle parked in violation of these regulations may be removed or towed away at the owner's expense.

(d) Towing. The college reserves the authority to remove from the campus by towing, at the owner's expense, any motor vehicle which is not registered as required or which is parked in violation of campus parking regulations.

(e) Issuance of complaints. A complaint regarding any violation of a campus rule shall be in writing reciting the time and place of the violation and the title, number or substance of the applicable rule.

(f) Failure to pay fines. Complaints issued by the public safety department of the university are for violation of this Part and shall advise that if the person charged does not dispute the violation, fines may be paid at the business office, Maytum Hall or public safety, Gregory Hall. Unpaid fines shall be deducted from the salary or wages of an offending officer or employee of the university. In the case of students, grades and transcripts shall be withheld until all fines are paid.

(g) Revocation of campus motor vehicle registration and parking privileges. Upon finding that 10 or more campus parking violations have been incurred during an academic year, the public safety department may revoke the campus motor vehicle registration and parking privileges of the offending individual and may direct that the vehicle be towed at the owner's expense if the revocation is violated.

§ 570.4 Hearing board and protests.

(a) Appointment and composition. The chief administrative officer shall designate a hearing board of three persons to be selected in the following manner:

(b) Responsibilities of hearing board. The hearing board shall be charged with the adjudication of all protests concerning campus parking violations in which the person charged files for a hearing. At the conclusion of the hearing, or not later than five days thereafter, the board shall file a report with the alleged violator, the business office, and the director of public safety. Such a hearing board shall not be bound by the rules of evidence but may hear or receive any testimony or evidence directly relevant and material to the issues presented. The hearing board shall also be empowered to grant special parking privileges in addition to those designated in section 570.5 of this Part. It is the responsibility of the hearing board to recommend to the college council for approval the criteria to be used for granting special privileges.

(c) Request for hearing. Upon receipt of a campus parking ticket, the person committing the alleged violation may request a hearing by filing a written protest at the public safety office, Gregory Hall, within seven days. Protest forms will be provided. Should no hearing be requested within the seven-day period, the violation is proved and the fine shall stand. The hearing board shall notify the alleged violator and the director of public safety of the date, place and time of the hearing. At the conclusion of the hearing or not later than five days thereafter, such hearing officer or board shall file a report. A notice of the decision shall be promptly transmitted to the violator.
