Parking wholly within the marked boundaries of the parking space is required at all times.
Vehicles shall not park in a manner that obstructs walkways, driveways, ramps, loading docks, marked cross-walks or inflicts damage to shrubbery, trees, grass, grounds or structures. Additionally, no vehicle may park on any area that has not been marked or designated for parking. Other improperly parked vehicles do not constitute an excuse for improper parking.

 

D. ENFORCEMENT AND IMPOUNDMENTS:
Failure to abide by these regulations may be the basis for disciplinary action against employee.  Upon notice, a violator may be subject to impoundment of their vehicle pending payment of overdue charges.  Vehicles may also be impounded for specific impound violations.

F. VISITORS:
OFFICIAL VISITORS are those who conduct business with or who render a service to U.T. System Administration and who are not otherwise eligible for annual parking permits.

Official visitors must obtain temporary parking permits from the guards at the kiosk. These permits entitle the holder to park only in a space designated by the U.T. System Administration guard on duty. Permits must be conspicuously displayed on each vehicle. (Section VI).

 

G. INOPERABLE VEHICLES:
If a vehicle becomes inoperable and is creating an obstruction or hazard, a call shall be placed to ODOP at 499-4680. Inoperable vehicles left for more than 24 hours will be considered abandoned and are subject to removal at the owner’s expense.
