Enforcement authority.

The university parking office staff and security officers are charged with the impartial enforcement of these regulations and have authority to issue parking tickets, to impound vehicles, and to control access to areas.
[Statutory Authority: RCW 28B.30.150. WSR 20-24-091, § 504-14-200, filed 11/25/20, effective 12/26/20; WSR 19-09-080, § 504-14-200, filed 4/17/19, effective 5/18/19; WSR 08-08-048, § 504-14-200, filed 3/27/08, effective 7/1/08.

PDF504-14-210

Times of enforcement.

Parking regulations are subject to enforcement at all times.
(1) Parking permit areas. All parking permit zones are limited to authorized permit holders during all hours of the day. These hours are posted in each parking area at the entrance.
(2) Restricted spaces. These spaces are restricted for their designated purpose at all times unless signed otherwise:
(a) Disability zones.
(b) Load/unload.
(c) Service.
(d) Reserved.
(e) Reserved (bagged) parking meters.
(f) Pedestrian mall.
(g) Areas which are specially signed or physically set apart by barricades, traffic cones, tape, or other traffic devices.
(3) Parking metered spaces. Parking meters are in effect during the times posted on each meter. During these times the meter must be paid the posted amount. Additional time cannot be purchased beyond the meter's posted maximum time limit (e.g., a thirty-minute meter allows a maximum of thirty minutes to be purchased at one time). A motor vehicle which is parked at an expired parking meter is considered in violation initially, and after each period equal to the maximum time posted for the meter. In such case a parking ticket may be issued for each violation. For example, a vehicle parked at a meter with a two-hour maximum time limit for six hours and five minutes of continuous unpaid parking at the same meter would be eligible for up to three parking tickets.
(4) Pay parking facilities. Some parking areas provide parking on an hourly basis. Hours of operation and a schedule of fees are posted at the facility entrance and at the point of payment. Parking tickets are issued to vehicles that are parked over the duration of time that was paid and for nonpayment. Parking areas with parking meters are not considered pay parking facilities.
[Statutory Authority: RCW 28B.30.150. WSR 19-09-080, § 504-14-210, filed 4/17/19, effective 5/18/19; WSR 08-08-048, § 504-14-210, filed 3/27/08, effective 7/1/08.

PDF504-14-220

Signed and marked areas.

(1) Parking on campus is allowed only in the marked and/or signed spaces in parking facilities. All other areas outside these designated areas are "no parking zones." Each parking facility has signs or markings to indicate the type of permit or payment required and the times they are required.
(2) Individual parking spaces are marked, and no vehicle may be parked so as to occupy any portion of more than one parking space. The fact that other vehicles were parked in a manner requiring a vehicle to occupy a portion of more than one space does not constitute an excuse for a violation of this regulation.
(3) Should there be a conflict between these regulations, map designation, and on-site signs regarding parking instructions, the on-site sign takes precedence.
(4) Permit areas and restricted spaces are not always signed individually.
(5) Standing (the stopping of a vehicle with the driver remaining in it) is allowed in marked parking spaces, except metered spaces and restricted spaces, even though the vehicle does not have a valid parking permit. Double parking while "standing" is not allowed.

Zone parking permitsAvailability and use.

Parking space is not guaranteed. The management and assignment of parking zones is designed to provide a parking space to each permit holder. However, uncontrolled access to parking areas and unexpected parking demand make it impossible to guarantee a parking space in a permit holder's purchased zone. Every effort is made via surveys and limits on permit sales, to ensure that permit holders are not displaced from their purchased zones. Parking zones are color-coded with respect to their price. Permit holders must park in their color-coded zone as described below.
(1) Orange permits. Orange permit holders may park in either orange or green zones.
(2) Green permits. Green permit holders must park in green zones only.

Other parking permitsAvailability and use.

(1) Visitor permits. Visitor permits may be used only by bona fide visitors as defined by this chapter. Use by any other individual constitutes illegal use of a parking permit. Visitor permits are valid in any zone and parking spaces signed for visitor permits only. Visitor permits are not valid at meters or restricted spaces.
(2) Permits honored by reciprocal agreement. Permits from other universities, including other WSU campuses, may be used only if detailed in and allowed by a fully executed reciprocal agreement with WSU Health Sciences Spokane.
(3) Golden cougar permits. Golden cougar permits are special visitor permits that are issued to retired staff in recognition of their service without additional cost. They are issued on an annual basis and are valid in any zone. Staff who are employed by the university or by other entities located on campus after formal retirement are not eligible to use a golden cougar permit in lieu of a regular paid zone permit.
(4) President's associates decals. President's associates decals are issued to eligible members of the Washington State University foundation. Use of these decals for parking must be in accordance with a separate agreement between WSU and the WSU foundation. However, university faculty, staff, and students may not use a president's associates decal or any other parking benefit instrument in lieu of a paid zone permit.
(5) Event/conference permits. Event/conference permits are available to visitors who participate in events and/or conferences held on the WSUS campus. They are available on a daily basis only. Event/conference permits may be assigned to a specific zone.
(6) Construction permits. A construction permit is issued to personnel who are working on a construction site on campus. Construction permits are available on an annual, semester, quarter, or daily basis and may be assigned to a specific parking area.
(7) Carpool. Upon application, a bona fide carpool as defined by the campus policies and procedures may be given preference in the assignment of parking zones, and issued a permit that facilitates the carpool. Carpool permits, virtual or otherwise, may not use more than one registered motor vehicle on campus at the same time. Obtaining or using a carpool permit under false pretenses constitutes the illegal use of a permit.

Parking fees and fines.

(1) Schedules for parking fees, parking administrative fees, late payment fees, parking fines and sanctions, parking meter rates, prorate and refund schedules, and the effective date thereof are submitted to the president or their designee and to the board of regents for approval by motion; provided, however, that increases in fees and fines do not exceed limits established by the board of regents. Increases in fees and fines that do not exceed limits established by the board of regents are not submitted to the board of regents so long as the board of regents has delegated authority to the president or their designee to approve all such fees and fines. The schedules for all parking fees and fines described above for all parking fees and fines are thereafter posted in the public area of the parking office and posted on the university's parking website.
(2) Payments. Parking fees and fines may be paid at the parking office by cash, check, approved payment card, or money order. A payroll deduction plan is available for eligible university employees and eligible graduate students.
(3) The proper fee must be paid for all vehicles parking in parking meter spaces unless otherwise authorized.
(4) Refunds. Annual physical permits being relinquished must be returned to the parking office in person for a pro rata refund (if any is available) in accordance with university policy. Identifiable remnants of physical permits must be returned. In the case of annual virtual permits, the permit purchaser must notify the parking office in person or in writing that they want to relinquish the permit permissions for a pro rata refund (if any is available) in accordance with university policy. The balance of any fees and fines owed the parking office is deducted from any available refund due. Refunds for temporary permits are not granted. Refunds for pretax payroll deductions cannot be granted pursuant to federal tax laws.
(5) The parking office makes a wide array of options available in advance to university departments for use by their visitors, guests, and employees for the purpose of conducting departmental business. However, when necessary, university departments that can establish in writing that a parking ticket issued by the parking office was received as a result of parking any vehicle for the purpose of conducting official state business, or while conducting official business with the university or any entity located at the university are assessed a parking fee assessment (PFA) in lieu of the parking fine. Such requests for PFAs are signed by a department fiscal custodian. A PFA consists of the maximum daily parking fee plus an additional administrative fee for failing to purchase and provide the necessary parking permit or fee in advance or at the time of parking. University departments are encouraged to avoid additional administrative fees associated with PFAs by purchasing and storing prepaid parking permits and by making them available as the department deems necessary. Nothing in this regulation allows a university employee to receive, or attempt to receive, any benefit associated with their personal expenses in violation of the State Ethics Act. All questionable employee conduct regarding the application of this section is reported to, and investigated by, the university internal auditor. This section applies only to parking tickets issued pursuant to this chapter.

Violations, fines, and sanctions.

(1) Violations and fines. Parking violations are processed by the university. Fines must be paid at the parking office or at other authorized locations by mail, or from the university's parking website. Schedules for parking violations, fines, and sanctions are posted in the public area of the parking office and on the university's parking website.

(3) Inoperable vehicles. It is the owner's responsibility to immediately contact the parking office in the event that the owner's vehicle becomes inoperable when the vehicle is present on campus.
(4) Payment of parking fines.
(a) All parking fines are due upon issuance of a parking ticket. Thirty days after date of issuance of a parking ticket, a late fee is added to all unpaid parking fines. For example, a parking ticket issued on May 1st is assessed a late fee on May 31st.
(b) Failure to pay the fine and fee assessed for any violation results in referral to the university controller's office for internal collection.
(c) Account balances not paid to the university voluntarily may be forwarded to an external collections agency and are subject to additional collection fees of up to fifty percent, attorney's fees, and court costs when necessary.
(d) Where collection efforts are unsuccessful, the controller or designee may notify the registrar to refrain from issuing student transcripts or to withhold permission to reenroll for a subsequent term until outstanding fines and fees are paid.
(e) The procedures discussed above are not exclusive, however, and failure by anyone to pay fines and fees may also lead to towing or use of the vehicle immobilization device described in these regulations. Nor are the procedures discussed above a precondition to towing or use of the vehicle immobilization device.
(5) Failure to pay fines. Failure to pay a fine or comply with other penalties assessed pursuant to these regulations, and exhausting or failing to exercise appeals provided for in these regulations, may result in the inability to renew a vehicle license through the state pursuant to RCW 46.16.216.

Appeal procedures.

The parking ticket represents a determination that a parking violation has been committed and the determination is final unless otherwise provided for or appealed as provided in this chapter.
(1) Purpose. The parking appeals process serves three primary functions:
(a) To hear parking ticket appeals;
(b) To hear appeals of vehicle immobilization eligibility determination; and
(c) To hear appeals of impoundments.
(2) Procedure. Any individual who has received a parking ticket may appeal the alleged parking violation. Appeal of vehicle immobilization eligibility determinations and impoundments are described in WAC 504-14-865 and 504-14-870.
(3) Written parking ticket appeals. The appeal must be in writing and received at the parking office within ten calendar days of issuance of the parking ticket. Online forms for this purpose are available from the parking office. The parking appeals committee makes an initial decision regarding the appeal within twenty calendar days during the academic year and within thirty calendar days during the summer months after receipt of the appeal. The committee provides a brief statement of the reason for its decision to the appellant within ten calendar days of the decision.
(4) Review hearing of initial decision. If the appellant is dissatisfied with the initial decision, the appellant may request a hearing before a hearing officer or the parking appeals committee. Such a request must be made within ten calendar days of the date of the initial parking appeals committee decision. If no such request is received, the initial decision is final. During the hearing the appellant and representatives of the parking office may present and cross-examine witnesses. The hearing officer or appeals committee must render a decision in writing and provide appellant with the decision within ten calendar days after the hearing.
(5) Appeal to district court. RCW 28B.10.560 provides that an individual who is not satisfied with the final decision of the university may appeal to district court. The application for appeal to district court must be in writing and must be filed at the parking office within ten calendar days after the date of the review hearing. The parking office forwards the documents relating to the appeal to the district court.

Vehicle immobilization-eligible list.

(1) The parking administrator is responsible for creating and maintaining the vehicle immobilization-eligible list. See definition of "vehicle immobilization-eligible vehicle" under WAC 504-14-100(48).
(2) A vehicle immobilization-eligible vehicle is placed on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list after notice has been issued as provided in subsection (3) of this section and an appeal of the vehicle immobilization eligibility determination, if requested, under subsection (4) of this section.
(3) At least ten days prior to placing a vehicle on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list, the parking administrator must mail a notice to the owner. The parking administrator mails the notice to the address stated on the most current registration records available to the university from a state, or any more current address of which the parking administrator has actual written notice. The notice is sent by first class United States mail, postage prepaid. The notice must set forth:
(a) The make and license plate number of the alleged vehicle immobilization-eligible vehicle.
(b) A specified date on which the vehicle immobilization-eligible vehicle is subject to placement on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list.
(c) A list of the three or more alleged unpaid parking tickets, including the parking ticket number, date, time, place of the violation, and the nature of the violation. This list must include all unpaid parking tickets issued to a particular vehicle to include the payment of fines and fees related to parking tickets not yet eligible for late fees.
(d) That the owner may avoid the placement of the vehicle on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list by making payment in full of fines and late fees on all unpaid parking tickets to include the payment of fines and fees related to parking tickets not yet eligible for late fees by the specified date on which the vehicle is subject to placement on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list.
(e) The name, mailing address (and street address if different), and telephone number of the parking office that may be contacted to appeal the vehicle immobilization eligibility determination. Such an appeal only considers whether an individual vehicle was properly placed on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list and not the merits of an individual parking ticket, which may be addressed pursuant to a separate appeals process described in WAC 504-14-860.
(f) That the vehicle is subject to vehicle immobilization, towing, or both once it is placed on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list.
(g) That all late fees, vehicle immobilization fees, towing, and storage fees are payable in full to obtain the release of a vehicle immobilized or towed pursuant to this chapter in addition to payment of any and all unpaid parking tickets on this vehicle or other vehicles owned by the registered owner to include the payment of fines and fees related to parking tickets not yet eligible for late fees.
(4) If a request for an appeal of a vehicle immobilization eligibility determination is received by the parking administrator before the specified date in the notice for placement of the vehicle on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list, then the parking administrator must afford the owner an opportunity to appeal the vehicle immobilization eligibility determination prior to the placing of a vehicle on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list. Although the parking administrator does not have the authority to adjudicate the merits of any parking ticket, they must, however, receive evidence and other input from the owner appealing the vehicle immobilization eligibility determination that the notice given under subsection (3) of this section was erroneous or based on erroneous information.
(5) If an owner timely participates in the appeal as scheduled by the parking administrator, the administrator must furnish the owner written notice of their decision prior to placing the vehicle on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list.
(6) After the specified date provided in the notice issued under subsection (3) of this section, the parking administrator must review the records to ensure that the alleged unpaid parking tickets have not been paid or otherwise resolved, and that no information has been received indicating that the notice was erroneous.
(7) Once a vehicle has been placed on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list, it must not be removed from the list unless and until:
(a) The fines and fees on all unpaid parking tickets issued during the time it has been registered to or otherwise held by the owner are paid or otherwise resolved to include the payment of fines and fees related to parking tickets not yet eligible for late fees;
(b) The parking administrator receives reliable information that title to the vehicle has been transferred; or
(c) The parking administrator determines that the placement of the vehicle on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list was erroneous.
(8) If a vehicle is not properly registered in any state or no registration information is available to the university and the vehicle is vehicle immobilization eligible, then notice is provided by posting on the vehicle a conspicuous notice, which must set forth:
(a) A description of the alleged vehicle immobilization-eligible vehicle;
(b) A specified date on which the vehicle immobilization-eligible vehicle is subject to placement on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list;
(c) That the owner may avoid placement of the vehicle on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list by making payment in full of fines and late fees on all unpaid parking tickets to include the payment of fines and fees related to parking tickets not yet eligible for late fees by the specified date certain on which the vehicle is subject to placement on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list; and
(d) That the vehicle is subject to vehicle immobilization, towing, or both once it is placed on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list.
(9) An officer must attempt to provide vehicle immobilization on any vehicle which appears on the vehicle immobilization-eligible list when parked, lawfully or unlawfully, on campus.
(10) The parking administrator must ensure officers are on duty or services are available to remove vehicle immobilization devices from vehicles Monday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.; except during recognized holidays.
