The revenues from permit sales, parking meters, improper parking, are used to maintain and build new parking areas. GUEST, VISITOR PARKING Guest, visitor parking permits are available at the Red Barn, behind Lot 18 on Washington Street. The permit entitles you to park in the lot assigned to you by Parking Services. The permit must be attached to the inside rearview mirror. Parking Meters: Meters are available for guests and visitors in all permit lots except lots 12 and 18 (free parking lots). Cost of metered parking averages 10 per hour. Meters are enforced from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., daily, except Saturday, Sunday and holidays. Handicapped parking permits are required to park in a handicapped space STUDENT, STAFF AND FACULTY PARKING All students, staff and faculty who wish to have parking available between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday-Friday, and park in a numbered lot must have a valid parking permit or use the available parking meters. Parking Permits: Annual and quarterly parking permits go on sale approximately three weeks before each quarter ends. Permits are available for all lots on campus Annual permits are $60 and quarterly permits are $20. Decal holders can obtain loan car permits at the Red Barn. Resident students using lots 13, 14 and 16 will get preference for those lots the first three days of permit sales. Lots 13, 14 and 16 are enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week to ensure that those resident decal holders have a place to park. / Permits go on sale every May 29 for the following school year. Permits are sold at Parking Services in the Red Barn, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday. Motorcycles will park in designated motorcycle parking areas located in most lots. Bicycle racks are located by most buildings and high use areas. Motorized vehicles, including motorcycles and mopeds, are not allowed in the inner campus area-all internal roads are for authorized service vehicles only. Loading/Unloading and Service Permits: A permit for loading or unload- ing heavy or bulky materials can be obtained from Parking Services. Per- mits are valid only for the date, time and location specified. Display of Permits: Parking permits are valid if displayed as follows: Decals are to be placed in the lower left hand corner of the rear window (driver's side). On convertibles and trucks they are to be placed in the lower left hand corner of the windshield. On station wagons they are to be placed on the lower left hand corner of the rear window (driver's side) or on the rear of the left side window. Decals not attached directly to the window are not valid. PARKING APPEALS Parking citations may be appealed within seven days of issuance to the EWU Parking Appeals Board, Red Barn. Thee are also appeal drop boxes located in Tawanka Commons, Showalter Hall and the Pence Union Building. PARKING CITATIONS Citations are given to insure space for those who have paid for permits. Parking lots are not oversold. Citations will be given for the following reasons: Class B - Parking in a numbered lot without a valid permit - Parking vehicle over the yellow line, taking two spaces. -- Parking next to a yellow curb or area posted "no parking". - Parking at an expired meter - all meters must be paid il used. Class A-Parking in a reserved space, or handicapped zone, without the appropriate permit. -Parking in a driveway, service area, or loading zone without the appropriate permit. -- Parking in a safety zone, fire lane. Citation Fines Are As Follows: if paid within Class B Class A 24 hours $3.00 $5.00 7 days $6.00 $9.00 after 7 days $9,00 $15.00 Class A violations are enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Class B violations are enforced between 8 a.m. - 5 pm., Monday-Friday, except the dormitbry lots 13, 14 and 16 which are enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Improper use of a guest/visitor permit, parking decal or car pool permit may result in a $25 fine or immobilization of the vehicle(s) involved. PAY YOUR PARKING FINES AT A REDUCED PRICE! Start out the school year with a clean slate. Those having any parking tickets from prior to Sept. 20 may pay them at a reduced rate. "Eliminate the inconvenience and embarrassment of having your ve- hicle immobilized, pay your fines now!" warns the Campus Safety Office. The reduced pay period will be from Sept. 20, through Oct. 20. All fines can be paid at the Red Barn between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. REDUCED FINE SCHEDULE Class "B" Citations - $3.00 Class "A" Citations - $5.00 IMMOBILIZATION/IMPOUNDMENT This consequence is not desirable. We would expect all would pay the citation fines and avoid an immobilization. However, the following procedure is used: Any vehicle with four or more unpaid parking citations may be subject to immobilization or impoundment and storage of that vehicle at the owner's/driver's expense. Once immobilized, fines must be paid within 72 hours or the vehicle will be impounded. A $5 charge plus payment of all unpaid citations must be made before the vehicle will be released. Any inoperative, disabled or abandoned vehicle that is not removed within 72 hourswill be impounded. THINGS TO REMEMBER 1) You must havea parking permit or use the parking meters. 2) Permits are on sale at the Red Barn, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday-Friday. 3) Warning slips will be given the first two days of classes; you must be parked legally starting the third day of classes. 4) Your vehicle may be immobilized if it has four or more unpaid citations. 5) Citations can be appealed within seven days of issuance at the Red Barn. 6) If you have further questions, call Campus Safety at 359-7911. IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII The Cheney Police Depart- ment welcomes all new stu. dents as well as the students returning to Eastern Wash- ington University this fall. While getting moved in and preparing for classes, many people will come in contact with the Cheney Police. This contact could be for a variety of reasons, but in a majority of cases, it will be the result of a parking violation. The population of Cheney doubles when school is in session. The number of ve- hicles in town seems to in- crease ten times. This is because more street parking is utilized. There are more than a dozen parking lots available on the University Campus for which a permit can be obtained from Campus Safety. If you choose to park on the city streets, be espe- cially cognizant of signs, fire hydrants, yellow curbs, crosswalks and driveways. Washington State Traffic Laws regarding parking are rigidly enforced in Cheney, and drivers should be famil- iar with all traffic laws. If you receive a notice of infraction for parking (park- ing ticket), you have seven days to respond to the Cheney Municipal Court. There are three options listed on the back of each ticket. You can pay the fine, contest the charge or ask for a hearing to explain why you parked ille- gally..If you don't respond to the court within the seven days allowed, a warrant for your arrest will be issued by the court. So, it may be "macho" to rip up a parking ticket in front of your friends, but it won't be quite a macho thing to be led off to jail in handcuffs and have to come up with $100 or more in cash just to keep from having to spend the night (maybe more in jail. Trying to find a parking spot near your classes after (and less expensive) to park a few blocks further away than to try to squeeze into a spot too small for your vehicle. A car parked even slightly into a no parking zone:can be cited, so save your money and walk that extra few blocks. Respond to infractions within seven days! A major source of irritation to local residents and a con- stant flow of calls to the police results from vehicles block- ing driveways. It probably won't help your gridepoint to be called out of class to move your car. Parking within five feet of a driveway is illegal. It is also illegal to park in a not, it is ill 15 feet of within 20 fe or within 30 yield sign.
