Parking Compliance Information
UC Davis tasks Transportation Services with funding, managing, and maintaining the campus parking and roadway system entirely by user fees. We also know that many would not pay the smaller parking fee without a significantly higher risk of paying a fine. To that end, the Parking Compliance division of Transportation Services searches for, and issues citations to vehicles parked on campus but are not in compliance with or have not paid the appropriate fee. However, Transportation Services would prefer to collect drivers’ small daily parking fees instead of issuing citations and collecting a more considerable fine. To learn more, read this article on ”Why?” on parking citations.
To keep parking fees as low as possible for all users, Transportation Services issues citations to encourage voluntary compliance. We prefer higher levels of compliance to the issuing of more citations. Our appeal process seeks behavior change as opposed to collecting fines. We have and will work with individuals to provide them with opportunities to become and remain compliant with the parking regulations.
