(h) Signs or markings. The rules set forth herein are executable when signs or markings have been erected or otherwise displayed and provide notice that parking is limited thereon to certain persons or times; or, when police officers or parking personnel are present and are directing parking and traffic thereto and therefrom.

(4) Parking permits. Parking permits will be required of all faculty, staff and students whenever and wherever parking upon the land and property of the university. When deemed necessary by parking and transportation services, temporary permits will be required by visitors in situations where the visitors will be on the land and property of the university for an extended period of time.

(a) Application. Registration of motor vehicles and issuance of parking permits will be deemed authorized and valid only when effected through the appropriate permit application and/or purchasing process. The permit issued will be the appropriate permit for the classification of the person applying.

(b) Use of permits. The person to whom the permit is issued is responsible for violations incurred against the permit unless notice of theft or loss of the permit is reported in a timely fashion to the university police department or university parking office. Car pool arrangements are encouraged so long as the authorized permit is properly displayed as provided herein. However, permits may not be resold or otherwise transferred. The use of a permit without the permission of the person to whom the permit was issued, or the use of a permit otherwise secured in a manner not specifically provided for herein, or the use of a fraudulent permit, shall be deemed "unauthorized" use, and the person displaying such a permit shall be fined accordingly as provided herein; provided further that parking and transportation services shall cause such permit to be confiscated and/or otherwise rendered null and void. Nothing herein is intended to preclude further prosecution by the university or others against any individual displaying an unauthorized permit.

(c) Permit fees. Permit fees shall be charged for such permits and collected from applicants with other academic fees or at the time application is made. Funds derived from such fees shall be deposited in a fund established for such purpose. Said fund shall be used for, but not limited: the establishment, construction, and maintenance of facilities for parking, equipment for maintenance and enforcement, personnel, the acquisition of decals or stickers, signs, construction and maintenance of parking facilities, traffic control devices and other materials and projects for the control of traffic and parking areas and for the maintenance, repair and extension of existing facilities, and to be pledged in support of the payment of such bonds as may be issued for the aforesaid purposes, and for salaries of traffic control and parking personnel.

(d) Issuance of permits. Parking permits shall be issued by parking and transportation services in accordance with generally recognized standards of traffic planning (parking formulas connecting enrollment versus number of spaces), with due consideration given to available space and number of parking permits issued. Student permits are issued each academic session, quarter, semester, or other appropriate period upon payment of fees charged in accordance with action taken by the board of trustees. Faculty and staff permits may be issued on a yearly basis or for shorter periods of time as determined by parking and transportation services. Temporary permits for faculty, staff, or students may be issued for periods of time as determined necessary by the parking and transportation services.

(e) Issuance of disability permits. Any faculty/staff member or student with temporary or permanent mobility impairment who has received a state-issued disability placard is eligible to obtain a university disability parking permit. All persons who wish to utilize disability or general parking with their state-issued disability placard are required to purchase and display a university disability parking permit rather than use the state placard along with a faculty/staff or student permit. The purpose of this policy is to help identify where disability spaces are needed, regulate the use of these spaces to ensure they are available for those who need them, and to discourage abuse by people utilizing a state placard issued to another person. There are two types of disability permits that may be issued: permanent and temporary. Prices for disability permits are equal to the current faculty/staff or maximum student permit rates. Parking and transportation services shall issue disability parking permits in a manner that is consistent with the goals of this paragraph.

(f) Display of parking permits. Parking permits for any current academic session, or other appropriate period, semester, when issued, shall be affixed to the motor vehicle when parking in university parking facilities and displayed in the manner and location as outlined at the time of issuance, or as otherwise provided for by section 4513.24 of the Revised Code, as presently enacted or as amended from time to time hereafter. All parking permits for any previous semesters, academic session or periods, should be removed from the motor vehicle. Authorization to park a motor vehicle is complete when the permit decal/hangtag is attached/affixed to the motor vehicle and displayed in the location described herein.

(g) Refunds. Refunds for parking permits will be based on an approved schedule which from time to time may be amended by the board of trustees and administered by the cashier's office or parking and transportation services.

(h) Expiration. Permits expire at midnight on the last day of the academic session, quarter, semester, or other period for which the permit was issued.

(i) Loss or theft of permit. Any person losing his or her permit shall report the permit number to parking and transportation services. The theft of a permit should also be reported to the university of Akron police. An additional permit will be issued at a reduced fee, upon the filing in parking and transportation services of an affidavit swearing to the theft or loss of the permit. The fee charged for the replacement permit shall be established by the director of parking and transportation services. If there is written verification by the university police that the vehicle has been forcibly entered and the permit stolen, a replacement permit shall be provided free of charge.

(j) Transfer of a motor vehicle. If a motor vehicle for which a permit shall have been issued is transferred, the parking permit shall be removed from the vehicle and the parking office notified of the transaction.

(E) Procedures.

(1) Police powers. The university of Akron police department and its police officers are authorized and directed to enforce these regulations by arrest, upon view or information, of anyone found violating the laws and regulations of the state of Ohio, local ordinances, or these regulations; or, in the alternative, to serve notice of such violations either upon the person found violating the same, or upon the motor vehicle found in violation of the same. Parking and transportation services and the agents thereof are also authorized and directed to enforce these regulations to the extent that they may serve notice of parking violations either upon the person found violating the same or upon the motor vehicle found in violation of same. Said notice, if served, shall provide notice of the violation claimed, the location of the violation, the time of the violation, and notice of the rights of the person accused of the violation.

(2) Service of notice of violation and election to pay penalty.

(a) Notice of violation may be served either upon the person violating university of Akron motor vehicle, traffic and parking regulations, or upon the motor vehicle or owner of such motor vehicle found in violation of same.

(ii) a notice of appeal is not properly and timely effected within ten business days from the date of notice, the individual charged will be deemed to have waived his or her right of appeal, and any fine or other penalty shall be finally imposed and shall constitute a financial obligation to the university of Akron. Provided further, that in such event, parking and transportation services may prevent the issuance of future registration and/or official academic transcript of credits until all existing fines have been paid or otherwise disposed of as provided herein.

(c) Any appeal requested after ten business days from the date of notice of the violation will be denied except that the parking and transportation services director in his sole discretion may permit such appeal for reasons beyond the control of the individual. A person upon whom notice is served or the owner of the vehicle upon which notice is served may pay, within ten business days from the date of notice, the prescribed penalty for such violation and thereby avoid further prosecution for collection of any fine for such violation. All fines shall be paid to the cashier's office or parking and transportation services.

Any funds which may be received as fines or penalties shall be used in the same manner as those funds derived from parking fees as heretofore specified.

(d) In the event the motor vehicle is registered in the name of a person who is not a student, a staff or faculty member, and a violation is issued against said vehicle, the parking and transportation services director shall determine if any member of the immediate family of said person was, at the time of issuance of said violation, a student, staff or faculty member, as provided herein. Upon such determination, the parking and transportation services director may cause such violation to be charged against any or all of said student(s), staff or faculty, within the immediate family of said person and cause notice thereof to be issued pursuant thereto. Students of the university of Akron are responsible for the vehicles they use on university property, and any violations issued thereon, even if the vehicle's state registration is in their parent's name, or in the name of some other member of the immediate family, or other person.
