§ 572.1 [Parking and traffic regulations.] Introduction.

Pursuant to Education Law, section 360, State University of New York is authorized to regulate traffic and parking at all State University of New York at Buffalo ("university") campuses.  The university provides roads and parking lots to facilitate university business. The university does not assume any liability for damage to or loss of private vehicles, their occupants or contents, to include any damage caused by moving or towing. Vehicles parked on campus without campus registration, without university authorization, or in violation of these regulations, is prohibited.

[(c)] Only faculty, staff and students whose motor vehicle displays a valid permit are entitled to use designated campus facilities.

[(d) The university assumes no responsibility for a vehicle or its contents. This includes any damage caused by moving or towing.]

This includes any damage caused by moving or towing.
  2. Temporary instruction.  Occasionally, special short-term conditions arise that may require suspending a portion of these regulations, or may require additional temporary regulations and/or instruction, including but not limited to commencement, sporting events, conferences, concerts or emergency situations. The Director of Parking & Transportation Services and/or the Chief of University Police is authorized by the president of this university (or his designee) to take such temporary actions as circumstances dictate.
  3. Registration.  All faculty, staff, students and authorized non-state employees are required to register their motor vehicle annually in accordance with the procedures outlined below.

  1. Registration.
    1. Who must register.  All persons associated with the university who park on university property between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, must register their vehicles with the university.  Registration allows individuals to park in designated parking lots if a space is available and a permit is displayed in accordance with printed instructions.

 

  1. When to register.  Individuals must register their vehicle and obtain the appropriate parking permit prior to utilizing campus parking facilities.

 

  1. Faculty/staff.  Incoming faculty or staff members should register their vehicles online or by visiting Parking & Transportation Services during business hours.  Faculty/staff permits expire annually, currently on August 31st.  Parking fees as approved by the Chancellor or designee, shall be charged for motor vehicles parked 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 State University at Buffalo.

 

  1. Students.  Students may register for parking permits online or by visiting Parking & Transportation Services.  Permits currently expire annually on August 31st.  Student registration for the subsequent academic year begins in May of each year.  Students are encouraged to register early.   

 

  1. Permits.  One permit will be issued by parking services when vehicles are registered. Permits are transferrable and may be used in any vehicle brought to campus. All citations affiliated with the individual and vehicle(s) being registered must be paid prior to permit issuance.  The permit must be removed if association with the university is terminated or the vehicle sold. Vehicles are considered registered only when the issued permit is displayed as required. Any permit obtained through misrepresentation or in violation of these motor vehicle regulations is void. A registered vehicle must be parked in the designated lot on campus to which it is assigned, and the permit must be displayed in accordance with instructions printed on, or distributed with, the permit.

 

  1. Eligibility. Eligibility must be validated by exhibiting the appropriate identification card which shall be confirmed by the university’s database. 

 

  1. Resident students.  Any student who lives in the University residence halls and/or apartments may register for a resident permit.  Resident permits are valid in any student or faculty/staff/student (shared) lot with the exception of lots designated as commuter only and apartment complex only lots.  Residents of University apartment complexes must display a valid sticker for the complex they reside in, along with a resident permit.

 

  1. Resident freshmen.  Freshmen living on campus are required to park in their residence hall lot or in a Park & Ride lot from 7a.m. to 3p.m., Monday through Friday.  Thereafter, they may park in the same location as resident students noted above.

 

 

  1. Commuter students.  Students who do not live on campus may register their motor vehicles for a commuter student permit.  Registered commuter students may park in any student or faculty/staff/student (shared) lot, with the exception of apartment complex lots.

 

  1. Faculty and staff.  Faculty and staff must register their motor vehicles and obtain a parking permit in order to utilize faculty/staff lots. Since faculty/staff parking is limited, eligibility does not guarantee a parking space. Registered faculty and staff members may park in any faculty/staff or faculty/staff/student (shared) parking lot.

 

  1. Students who are also employees and that are classified as student assistants, research assistants, teaching assistants, and graduate assistants are eligible for student parking privileges, not faculty/staff.

 

 

  1. Others.  Visitors to the university may operate and park properly campus-registered motor vehicles on campus subject to these regulations. When a motor vehicle is on campus, it must be parked in areas designed for visitor use by the parking permit or by special arrangements prescribed by Parking & Transportation Services.  Visitors may also pay to park at meters or pay lot.

 

  1. Definitions.
    1. The term motor vehicle as used in this Part means all self-propelled vehicles, automobiles, motor scooters, motorcycles, and motor bicycles.
    2. The term faculty-staff applies only to the following: 
      1. employees on State, Research Foundation, Management/Classified, UBF, or FSA payroll in a full or part-time basis.

 

  1. Change of ownership.  A campus parking permit is not transferable between persons.  A permit registrant will be held liable for any summonses issued involving that permit.

 

  1. Lost/stolen permits.  The permit registrant shall immediately report a lost/stolen permit to the parking services office. Recovered lost/stolen permits are null and void and should be destroyed.  A parking citation will be issued to vehicles that display a permit that has been reported lost or stolen.

 

 

  1. Parking.

 

  1. Where to park.

 

  1. Campus parking zones are limited for use by motor vehicles assigned to these areas during restricted hours. Each operator must park in the appropriate area as indicated by the type of permit they are issued. Parking is not permitted in locations not explicitly identified for this purpose, such as roads, parking lot aisles, walkways and grass areas. In paved lots, parking is permitted only within spaces marked for parking by parking lines on pavement.
  2. Parking may be restricted, in designated areas of any parking lot, to limited categories of visitors or persons having business with the university and/or conditioned upon payment of a parking fee, or to facilitate event parking.

 

  1. Permitted hours.

 

  1. Faculty/staff and student lots.  Parking in faculty/staff and student lots is restricted to holders of applicable permits from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.
  2. Student apartment lots.  Apartment parking lots are restricted to holders of valid student permits, with validating complex sticker, at all times.
  3. Specially designated reserved spaces are restricted at all times.  These include but are not limited to spaces reserved for the disabled, service vehicles, State vehicles, “A” permits, police vehicles, etc.  Time limits in certain spaces are applicable.
  4. Parking meters.  Parking meters are enforced from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

 

  1. Improper parking.

 

  1. The assignment of a parking permit does not guarantee space in the designated zone. The driver is responsible for finding an approved spot for the vehicle. If the owner/operator is unable to find a space in a parking lot, he or she may park in a park and ride lot (bus service is provided from these lots at no charge).
  2. All drivers are cautioned that the university, having marked approved spaces, does not mark all areas where parking is prohibited. Each lot is marked by a sign at the entrance. Any area not so designated is not considered a legitimate parking area. An approved space is designated by parking lines painted on the pavement.
  1. Exceptions.

 

  1. The regulations as written specify who may park in particular parking areas. Motorists may request an exception from these regulations in particular cases.

 

  1. Requests from motorists must be presented to the Director of Parking & Transportation Services or the Chief of University Police.  Documentation must be submitted that allows for making a clear finding that the application of these regulations will create:
    1. A personal hardship related to health or safety, and that the hardship can be reasonably resolved only by an exception.
    2. Construction related conditions which warrant use of a temporary staging area.

 

  1. Trailers containing living quarters shall not be parked on University property at any time without permission of the Director of Parking & Transportation Services or the Chief of University Police.

§ 572.3 [Registration of resident students.] Special Regulations.

[Resident students shall be required to register vehicles in accordance with campus rules at the campus parking office.]

  1. Restricted areas.
    1. Fire zones and fire lanes.   Fire zones are areas, paved or unpaved, that permit firefighting equipment to come close to a building and/or areas around a fire hydrant or standpipe connection. Parking or standing vehicles are not allowed in a fire zone at any time, and any vehicle so parked or standing is subject to ticketing and towing.  Vehicles may not be parked in any manner to block or interfere with a fire exit of a building.  Fire zones and lanes are identified by yellow paint on pavement or curbs or by posted signs.

 

  1. Walkways/Bike path.  Any paved way on the campus that is not defined as a roadway is by definition a walkway/bike path. Driving is not permitted on walkways/bike path, except under emergency circumstances (cf. chapter 11, Uniform Vehicle Code, Vehicle and Traffic Law). Emergencies refer to the need to bring fire, rescue, ambulance, or police vehicles close to a building in order to safeguard lives or property. Use of walkways/bike path by other vehicles is forbidden. Under exceptional circumstances, permission for driving on walkways/bike path shall be obtained in advance from the Chief of Police or designee, on a case-by-case basis. When permission is granted the vehicle shall not be driven over five miles per hour. Permission in one instance is not a precedent and does not carry over to similar future circumstances. University police personnel are authorized, under section 1602 of the Vehicle and Traffic Law, to declare a walkway/bike path an emergency roadway.

 

  1. Reserved Spaces.  Reserved spaces are approved and established by Parking & Transportation Services.  This includes but is not limited to State vehicles, emergency vehicles, vehicles owned and operated by the disabled, University-owned vehicles, “A” permit only spaces, electric vehicle charging spaces, and paid or metered parking spaces.

They may not use walkways/bike paths or sidewalks nor may they park in unauthorized areas unless they are on an emergency call and notification of such call has been acknowledged by Parking & Transportation Services or University Police.  Operators of State vehicles are liable for tickets issued to vehicles and may be subject to disciplinary referral.
      2. Buses.
        1. Driver operation. University buses are subject to all campus traffic regulations.

Student service permits are valid in “service” parking spaces for two hours. Student service permits are not valid in “state” or “university owned vehicle” parking spaces at any time.  Student service permits may only be used during noted “working hours” completed on the application form.

 

  1. Vendors.  Vendors regularly providing services on the campus who use their own vehicles must apply for special vendor parking permits.  Examples include vending machine contractors, laundry machine contractors and food, florist and delivery services. If, in the performance of their services, these contractors require access to a building through non-service areas, they shall obtain approval from Parking & Transportation Services or the Chief of University Police and follow any special conditions provided during the approval/consultation process.

 

  1. Media personnel. Media permits are intended to serve off-campus media personnel.  Media personnel with a valid permit may park at meters, in service spaces, or in any university lot (except Bonner lot).  Media permits are not valid in handicap spaces, early childhood center spaces, electric vehicle charging station spaces, “Zipcar” spaces, “state” spaces, “carpool,” “University-owned,” or “A-permit” spaces.  Media must adhere to fire lane restrictions and cannot block roadways, driveways, or drive lanes.

    3. Operations. Contractor vehicles may not park in roadways or sidewalks for loading or unloading or for operation of special equipment without prior written approval from the Director of Parking & Transportation Services or the Chief of University Police.  Written approval shall state the special conditions under which such vehicles may park or stand on roadways.

Failure to present this permit on demand shall subject the driver/operator to citation.

 

  1. Motorcycles. Operation and parking of motorcycles and mopeds are regulated the same as other vehicles. Motorcycles and mopeds may not be driven on walkways nor parked close to or inside buildings. 

 

  1. Visitors.  Visitors parked in paid or metered spaces currently are not required to obtain a parking permit.

  1. Violations are of two categories:
    1. non-moving (parking citation) and (2) moving (traffic summons).

 (*) Violations issued for Other refer to parking infractions that may not be set forth in this article.  Issuing officer will provide a clear description of the parking impact, consistent with New York State Vehicle & Traffic Law.

 

Parking warning tickets may be issued and shall be recorded as part of the individuals’ parking history.  All parking citations are returnable as described pursuant to the State University Trustees umbrella regulations (section 560.3 (d) of this Title).

 

  1. Enforcement activities.

 

  1. Ticketing.  Parking enforcement officers and University Police officers are empowered to issue summonses (tickets) to vehicles found in violation of any parking regulations. Summonses are issued in accordance with subsection (a) and (b) of this section. Officers are empowered to issue adjudication summonses when appropriate due to the seriousness of the situation. Note: Other personnel, when designated and authorized by the Director of Parking & Transportation Services may issue university summonses to vehicles found parked in violation of these regulations.

 

  1. Cited violators.
    1. Each issued summons must be answered by paying the fine or by filing an appropriate appeal online or in-person at Parking & Transportation Services.  Fines may be paid at Parking & Transportation Services, online, and/or at the Student Response Center, as prescribed on each summons. 
    2. Failure to pay a summons when due will result in the imposition of a late payment fee, in accordance with subsection (d) of this section.

 

  1. Appeals.
    1. A plea of innocent to a summons, a claim of extenuating circumstances, or a request for personal hearing, shall be made in accordance with printed instructions on the summons.  Appeals may be submitted in-person at Parking & Transportation Services or online via the parking website. 
    2. Appeals must be submitted in writing within 15 calendar days following the date of issuance.  This constitutes the first step of the appeal process.
    3. Unfavorable appeal decisions at the first step described above may be taken to the second step of the appeal process, by requesting an in-person hearing.  Request for hearing must be submitted to Parking & Transportation Services within ten days of the date of the first step decision.
    4. Hearings are scheduled before an appeals officer and are heard under oath. Appellants are allowed to make sworn statements and provide further evidence in support of the appeal. Hearings are tape recorded and scheduled for approximately fifteen (15) minutes in duration.
    5. Whenever an appeal is denied by the hearing officer, the appellant must pay the fine.  Failure of a student to pay a fine may result in the withholding of transcripts and imposition of other university sanctions until the fine is paid. Failure of a university employee to pay a fine may result in appropriate deduction from salary or wages due until the fine is paid. Failure of visitors to pay fines may result in legal proceedings.
    6. Subsequent to paying the fine, the appellant may access a third and final step of the appeal process, which entails the coordination of a three member panel of University faculty, staff, and student members.  The panel’s responsibility is to review the decision(s) made at prior appeal steps in effort to determine whether there was an error in fact or law, or that the appellant was not afforded due process.  If these criteria are not met then the panel cannot reverse a hearing officer’s decision.  The first and second step appeal information is reviewed during a panel meeting; appellants do not appear.

 

  1. Hearing officers.
    1. The chief administrative officer (or designee) shall designate a hearing officer(s) or board not to exceed three persons to receive and examine appeals submitted by individuals cited for violation of traffic and parking regulations enforced on campus. The hearing officers or board shall not be bound by the rules of evidence, but may hear or receive any testimony or evidence directly relevant to the issues involved.
    2. The hearing officer(s) will give a decision on the submitted appeal at the time the appeal is received, unless further investigation is required. A written decision will be rendered on a written appeal.

 

  1. Towing/Immobilization.
    1. Vehicles on campus parked illegally or which constitute a safety hazard, interfere with university operations or are not removed upon notice, are subject to being towed or immobilized. Vehicles owned/operated by individuals with six or more outstanding parking tickets are subject to immediate towing/immobilization. All vehicles shall be towed/immobilized at the owner's expense. In addition, the owner shall also be liable for any penalties assessed for the violation for which the vehicle was towed/immobilized.
    2. Claiming towed vehicles.

This hold may only be removed upon presentation of a receipt from the parking office showing that all tickets have been paid in full or that a pay agreement has been made. This registration hold also prevents students from receiving grades, transcripts and diplomas.

  1. A notice of proposed revocation shall be in writing and shall be delivered to the registered owner of the vehicle:
    1. The notice shall recite that a hearing may be requested within seven days after receipt of the letter.  The in-person hearing will be subsequently scheduled at Parking & Transportation Services (or such other place as may be designated by the council).
    2. The notice shall recite that, should the alleged violator fail to appear at the time fixed for the hearing, or should no hearing be requested within the period as prescribed by the notice, the permit will be revoked.
  2. The chief administrative officer shall designate a hearing officer or board, not to exceed three persons, to adjudicate the issuance of a revocation of parking registration and loss of parking privileges where a hearing has been requested. 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. 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. The record shall include:
    1. the name and address of the alleged violator;
    2. the time and place when the notice of proposed revocation was issued;
    3. the campus rule violated;
    4. a concise statement of the facts established on hearing based upon the testimony or other evidence offered;
