FINES ARE PAYABLE AT GORDON STATE COLLEGE POLICE DEPARTMENT LOCATED IN GORDON HALL
Failure to pay fines in a timely manner will result in them being turned over to collections.
Individuals who have received three (3) citations and have neglected to respond either by appeal or payment will be placed on a tow/immobilization list. A fourth citation will result in the vehicle being towed or immobilized by a car boot. All fines must be paid before a vehicle is released. The college reserves the right to impound any vehicle parked in a manner dangerous to vehicular or pedestrian traffic or otherwise in violation of college traffic regulations. The owner is responsible for all costs involved in removing, impounding, and storing such vehicles.
Any faculty, staff or student who receives a traffic/parking ticket has the right of appeal. Persons dissatisfied with a ticket must file an online appeal through Banner Web (BOSSCARS) within ten (10) business days of the alleged violation. The Vice President of Student Affairs will review all appeals. Relief will be given only in extreme circumstances. IGNORANCE OF THE REGULATIONS IS NO EXCUSE.
- The owner or registrant of a vehicle is responsible for all citations issued against that vehicle whether or not they committed the violation. When a vehicle has been loaned to another person and is subsequently given a ticket, the person who was driving the vehicle at the time it was ticketed should pay the fine. However, the person to whom the vehicle is registered will be held accountable.
- It is impossible to determine whether or not a ticket was on the vehicle when the driver returned. A presumption will, therefore, govern the case. A TICKET PLACED ON A VEHICLE IS PRESENT WHEN THE DRIVER RETURNS.
- The fact that illegal parking was brief does not serve as an excuse or a special or unusual circumstance.
- The fact that an operator has parked illegally in the past without receiving a ticket does not constitute an excuse or a special or unusual circumstance.
