Penalties

  1. When an individual’s vehicle has been ticketed 3 times in any semester, that person shall be deemed a chronic violator. After having received 3 tickets, the individual will be required to justify to the Vice President of Student Affairs why he/she should continue to be allowed parking privileges at the University. Until such justification is presented, the person’s vehicle will be placed on the towing list and will be towed if found parked in a University lot. Before any vehicle towed under this provision will be released, all tickets charged to that vehicle must be paid. The fine for towing under this provision will be the actual towing charge.
  2. A $15.00 penalty will be imposed for false registration. A $15.00 penalty will be imposed for: parking in other than assigned lot; parking in a loading zone; parking in front of a fire hydrant; and parking in a no parking zone.
  3. Permit violators will have the option of buying a parking permit and having the first violation erased. Subsequent violations will be charged. During the start of fall and spring terms, there will be a two-week warning period on tickets for only new faculty, staff, and students to get to know the parking rules to allow a grace period that will be monitored by the Superintendent of Security.
  4. All penalties not paid will result in the withholding of the student’s records until such penalties are paid at the Business Office.
  5. Any vehicle left on a University parking lot for an extended period of time (30 days) or over summer vacation without the approval of the University will be removed at the owner’s expense. Approval is granted through the Parking Office in the form of a valid University Parking Permit.
  6. When a vehicle is apparently mechanically inoperable or has not been moved for a period of 30 days, the vehicle will be impounded at the owner’s expense.
  7. Penalties for handicapped violations will be as set by law and a City of Minot parking ticket.
  8. The Minot Police Department is authorized to cite vehicles parked in Fire Lanes, No Parking, and Handicap Zones.
