Violations of approved college “Traffic Rules and Regulations” or city, state, or federal laws shall be cited by Physical Plant security personnel and assessments or penalties as stated shall be assessed. Failure to respond to citations and pay assessments as levied can result in refusal by the college to release transcripts for students, denial of the privilege of registering in subsequent semesters, and revocation of college parking privileges after formal notification as stated in the Parking Rules and Regulations.
      1. Faculty and staff with outstanding violation ticket(s) will be notified via certified letter each semester of their outstanding violation ticket(s).
