In an effort to provide efficient parking, the campus lots are restricted to certain users. When an unregistered car parks in a lot or a registered car parks in the wrong lot, it disrupts the normal parking operation of the campus.
Thus, the tickets are written for vehicles which are parked in handicapped spaces, for failure to display a valid permit, parking in restricted areas, parking in drive/service areas or no parking zones, expired parking meters, parking on the grass or sidewalk and other violations.
Parking tickets can be paid in person at the CMU Police Parking Services, U.S Mail or online
. The ticket and payment can also be placed in the yellow "Fine-O-Meter" box located at the CMU Police Department.
When classes are NOT in session, parking enforcement will continue in all faculty/staff lots, metered, reserved, service drive and handicapped spaces. Parking Services will NOT be conducting enforcement in the STUDENT LOTS ONLY, these include residence hall lots and commuter lots. Your vehicle must be parked in a valid space.
