Parking fines will be reduced by $10 if paid within 2 working days from the date of the ticket. The wheel lock fee may not be reduced. Tickets paid at the reduced rate may not be appealed. Using an altered or forged hang tag is a crime. Violators will be ticketed, lose their campus parking privileges for 12 months, and are subject to criminal prosecution. If you are a student, all assessed fines will be applied to your account. No grades or transcripts will be issued until outstanding fines are paid. Registration for the next term cannot be completed until fines are paid. Individuals not having a student account with Fontbonne must pay outstanding fines within 7 days from the date the ticket is issued. Individuals not paying assessed fines within this grace period will lose their privilege to park on campus. Vehicles owned or operated by these individuals will be placed on the wheel lock list. A charge of $50 plus the amount of the outstanding fines must be paid before a locked vehicle is released. Employees are encouraged to apply for payroll deduction in the Business Office to pay for outstanding parking fines before being placed on the wheel lock list. An individual receiving 4 or more tickets in a 30-day period or 8 tickets within one academic term will be classified as a habitual violator. With each subsequent parking violation, vehicles owned or operated by habitual violators will be wheel locked until the assessed fine is paid. All fines should be paid at the Business Office, Room 215 Ryan Hall, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you wish to pay by mail, please include your name, telephone number, and the parking ticket number with your payment. Your payment should be mailed to: Fontbonne University, Business Office, 6800 Wydown Blvd., St. Louis, Missouri, 63105-3098.
Parking tickets may be appealed. Appeal forms are available from the Department of Public Safety or the Mailroom. You may also appeal on-line at INSERT LINK Appeals must be filed with the Public Safety Department within 7 working days from the date of the ticket you are appealing. Appeals not received within this time period will not be considered. Fines will not be payroll deducted or applied to an account until the initial appeal process has been completed. Forgetting to hang your tag, not knowing the parking regulations, running late, and the lack of a parking space are not considered acceptable reasons to appeal a parking ticket. A second appeal may be made to the Parking Appeal Board if you feel your first appeal was not fairly considered. Appeals to the Board must be submitted in writing only on the Board appeal form. Second appeals must be received within 21 days from the date of the ticket that you are appealing. Forms for this appeal may be obtained from the Public Safety Director’s office, Room 101-B in Ryan Hall.
Individuals violating our parking regulations are subject to having their vehicles immobilized by the use of a wheel lock. This is done in lieu of towing vehicles from our property. However, vehicles are subject to immediate towing if they are parked or left unattended in a location that impedes traffic, blocks an unloading zone, fire lane, or otherwise creates a safety hazard. Vehicles not properly licensed, not in operating condition or that have been or appear to have been abandoned are subject to towing. If your vehicle becomes disabled, please notify the Department of Public Safety. An immobilized vehicle is subject to towing after 48 hours if it remains unclaimed or if outstanding fines remain unpaid. Vehicles are towed at the expense of the owner. Fontbonne is not responsible for damage to towed vehicles or to vehicles that have been immobilized using a wheel lock. Contact the Department of Public Safety at extension (314) 599-2947 for information regarding towed vehicles. If you have visitors on campus to see you, please have your guests register at the Public Safety Office across from St. Joseph’s Hall. Visitors will be issued a guest pass for their vehicles. Unregistered vehicles are subject to ticketing, booting, and towing. If no one is available at the Public Safety Office please call (314) 889-4596. Information given on official University forms must be correct and complete. Providing false or misleading information may result in disciplinary action or cancellation of registration. Anyone who removes, alters, destroys or reveals the contents of records or files of a student, faculty or administrative member of Fontbonne University without authorization may be subject to prosecution under civil law and dismissal from the University. Changes in a student’s name or address must be recorded in the registrar’s office. Failure to receive information from the University will not be an acceptable excuse if a student has failed to notify the registrar of such changes.
