FAQ - Common Parking Mistakes

  1. If a meter in reading FAILED, or it does not register when money is placed in the meter please call the Parking and Transportation office (435) 797-3414 to report the problem. You may be asked to move your vehicle to a meter that is functional.
  1. Any amount of time, regardless of reason, parked at an unpaid meter is considered a valid citation. Meters are intended for SHORT-term parking.
  1. Dedicated stalls are posted at the stall or the entrance to the lot and indicate the type of patron that is allowed to park in it. These sign generally have the word "RESERVED" on them. Only vehicles displaying a valid permit may park in dedicated stalls.
  1. Parking stalls are designated by parallel yellow lines. This does not include hash marks (lines that run diagonally though an entire stall.  Generally, you will find these at the end of a row, in front of a door, or next to a Disabled stall). If the vehicle (including motorcycles) is not parked between two yellow parallel lines, a citation will be issued.
  2. Red curbed and loading areas are considered no parking zones.
  3. Leaving an unattended vehicle at a curb with the hazards on, or the engine still running, is considered a parked vehicle.
  1. Drivers are required to park between two painted stall lines regardless of parking lot conditions. Any part of the vehicle that is on or over the painted line is considered in violation. If the lines cannot be seen due to snow the driver should move the snow to ensure they are parked legally.
  1. All on-campus parking lots have signs at the entrances indicating type of permit required and when it is required. Check the current Parking map for an outline of the current parking lots.  The map is a general reference tool.  The signs at the lot supersede the map regarding permit type and hours of enforcement.
