§ 571.0 Definitions.

For purposes of this Part, the following are defined as:

(a) Employee. All officers, full-time and part-time faculty and staff employed by the college, the college association, the college foundation, and the State University Research Foundation. (Exception: resident assistants, student managers or student workers are not employees.)

(b) Student. All individuals registered in a full-time or part-time course of study.

§ 571.1 Registration of vehicles.

(a) No student, employee or member of any organization utilizing space on the campus shall operate or park a motor vehicle of any kind or description on premises or property under the control of the university unless such motor vehicle is properly registered with the university police department of the campus.

(b) Such registration shall be conditioned upon the registrant's payment of a motor vehicle registration fee and any applicable parking fee, as approved by the chancellor or his designee, or if directed by the Board of Trustees, by the Board of Trustees. The amount of the registration fee shall be substantially based on the costs attributable to the vehicle registration procedure. Parking fees for employees shall be consistent with applicable collective bargaining agreements. All parking fees shall be approved in accordance with guidelines established by the president or designee, or by the Board of Trustees, as the case may be. 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 of Technology at Canton.

(c) Upon payment of a motor vehicle registration fee and any applicable parking fee, a permit shall be issued which must be affixed to the vehicle in accordance with instructions provided. Where such registered vehicle is sold or transferred or where the owner or operator is no longer enrolled or in the employ of the institution, or in the event of the revocation of a registration, such permits must be removed and returned.

§ 571.2 Parking regulations.

(a) No person shall park a vehicle in any area except those areas specifically designated as motor vehicle lots or spaces. Where campus parking areas have been designated, respectively, for students, employees or visitors, as the case may be, no motor vehicle shall be parked in a designated parking area other than the parking area to which such registrant or visitor has been assigned. Special parking permission may be granted in extraordinary circumstances by the chief of university police. The chief of university police may also restrict parking in designated areas due to extraordinary circumstances such as weather conditions, special campus events, construction, etc., provided that notice of such restrictions be published in campus communications and/or appropriate signs be erected.

(b) No person shall park a motor vehicle within their designated parking area other than within the space for the parking or standing of a motor vehicle as indicated by posted signs, pavement markings, or painted lines restricting or limiting such parking.

(c) 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, or other emergency zone, create any other hazard or unreasonably interfere with the free and proper use of a roadway or pedestrian way. Any person, except those having express permission of the chief of university police or designee, who parks in areas restricted by signs or fails to properly register their vehicle, will be ticketed and their vehicle may be towed away at the owner's expense.

(d) No person shall park or cause a vehicle to be parked in spaces marked as handicapped parking spaces unless an appropriate permit for handicapped parking is displayed.

§ 571.3 Traffic regulations.

(a) Operation of vehicles on or off campus must conform with all State and municipal regulations as well as college regulations. The Vehicle and Traffic Law shall apply upon such premises notwithstanding any reference in such law to public highways, streets, roads, or sidewalks.

(b) A complaint regarding any violation of the Vehicle and Traffic Law or any traffic ordinance applicable on such premises shall be processed in accordance with the requirements of applicable law. All violations other than parking are handled through uniform traffic tickets, which are answerable to the Village Justice, Village of Canton.

(c) The speed limit on all college roads is as posted. 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 to 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.

§ 571.4 Enforcement.

(a) Tickets for violations must be issued only by members of the university police department.

(b) If the violator disputes the charge and requests an appeal hearing, an appeal form will be supplied which will be used to schedule the offender before the campus parking violation appeals board. If the board finds the ticket was unwarranted, then the refund will be authorized. Appeals must be requested within five business days from the date of the ticket. Any person who does not appear before his or her scheduled appeals board meeting will forfeit his or her right of appeal. This means that the complaint is proved.

(c) The penalty for violation of these regulations is:

Upon a finding that five campus parking violations have been incurred during an academic year, the campus motor vehicle registration may be revoked with a loss of parking privileges for the balance of the academic year and may result in the vehicle being towed from the campus at the violator's expense.

(d) Three or more unanswered complaints in an 18-month period by the same person regarding violations of a campus parking rule, shall result in a referral to the New York State Commissioner of Motor Vehicles for review in considering the renewal of an operator’s license and/or a motor vehicle registration, and the imposition of a fee as approved by the campus president or designee, or by the Board of Trustees, as the case may be, to meet the administrative costs of such referral.

§ 571.5 Appeals board.

(a) The campus president or designee shall designate a hearing officer board not to exceed three persons to hear complaints for violation of campus traffic and parking regulations enforceable on campus. Such hearing officer or 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 board will be comprised of a panel of six persons as follows: two students; two faculty; two classified staff. Any three persons, one from each constituency, shall be present to hear appeals. At the conclusion of the hearing or not later than five days thereafter, such hearing board shall file a report. A notice of the decision shall be promptly transmitted to the violator. The report shall include:

(b) The campus parking violation appeals board will be responsible for administration of this section. This board will meet at the call of the chairperson.

(c) No excuses will be accepted because of ignorance of the vehicle registration, traffic and parking regulations.
