Emergencies.

The vice president for student affairs, or their designee, has the authority to suspend, modify or repeal any or all provisions in this chapter for an authorized college event or in the event of an emergency, disaster or other like contingency.

[Statutory Authority: RCW 28B.40.120. WSR 17-02-076, § 174-116-225, filed 1/3/17, effective 2/3/17.]



174-116-230
Liability of college.

The college assumes no liability for motor vehicles or their contents when such motor vehicles are on campus. The college offers parking permits to those desiring to park on campus. A parking permit licenses the holder (licensee) to park one motor vehicle in the lots designated on the permit. The college is not responsible for fire, theft, damage, or loss of vehicle or any article left in such vehicle. A parking permit is a license to park and no bailment is created. A "motor vehicle" is defined as a vehicle that is self-propelled; for example cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Motor vehicles include a neighborhood electric vehicle as defined in RCW 46.04.357 and a medium-speed electric vehicle as defined in RCW 46.04.295. Electric personal assistive mobility devices and power wheelchairs are not considered motor vehicles.
[Statutory Authority: RCW 28B.40.120. WSR 17-02-076, § 174-116-230, filed 1/3/17, effective 2/3/17.]



174-116-235
Enforcement.

(1) Whenever an unattended vehicle is parked in violation of these regulations, the college may take the registration number and other identifiable information and may affix to such vehicle a parking citation in a conspicuously visible location.
(2) When an attended vehicle is parked in violation of these regulations, and upon request of a designated college official, the driver may be required to move the vehicle immediately to a designated parking area or off college property. Refusal to move the vehicle is a violation of these regulations and may warrant a parking citation.
[Statutory Authority: RCW 28B.40.120. WSR 17-02-076, § 174-116-235, filed 1/3/17, effective 2/3/17.]

The college maintains the authority to sell and require the display of special event parking permits during times and days, including weekends, as established by the college. Vehicles parked on campus are required to display valid parking permits at all times and days of the week as established by these rules. A complete list of parking permits issued by the college is available in the parking services office and on the college web site.
