Enforcement

The College provides Campus Peace Officers for the safety of persons and property. All persons using the campus parking facilities are expected to cooperate with the officers by accepting their directions and suggestions. Officers will place tickets on all vehicles in violation of parking regulations.

As many of you are aware, an unsafe condition exists as students, faculty, and staff attempt to cross the street on Goulden Avenue to access the South Parking Lot. The condition is being created by a constant flow of double-parked cars that impede both vehicular and pedestrian movement in the area.

To alleviate this condition, the Public Safety Department will issue “double-parking Summons”. Our intention with this initiative is not to cause inconvenience to any member of the College Community but rather to provide a safer environment in that area.

Penalties

Please be advised that failure to pay parking violations summonses may result in the revocation of your campus parking privileges, deactivation of your dual card and, for students a negative service indicator will be placed on your CUNYfirst account. Anyone who repeatedly violates College parking regulations will forfeit their privilege of using the College parking facilities, and will be reported to the proper College authorities.

Should it become necessary to remove a vehicle which is found to be in violation of parking regulations, the owner will be liable for all expenses incurred.

If your vehicle is TOWED, report to the Public Safety Department for all the information needed to retrieve your vehicle. The 50th and 52nd Police Precincts (according to where the vehicle is parked) will be notified of the towing occurrence.
