FAQs About Parking and Vehicle Registration
“When does University Police stop ticketing?”
UPD tickets 24/7/365. It is a misconceived notion that UPD officers do not ticket in summer and after business hours.
“I cannot find parking close to my destination.”
The college does not guarantee parking close to one’s intended destination. It does, however, manage the ratio of parking spaces to purchased hang tags.
“I forgot my hang tag in my other registered vehicle…now what?”
A registrant may obtain a day pass (for a maximum term of 48 hours) to retrieve a misplaced hang tag; or file a lost/stolen affidavit with UPD, Health Center; and pay a $30 replacement fee to Student Accounts, Kehoe 101.
“I got a ticket…now what?”
The back of the ticket discloses payment and/or appeal instructions. Fines are payable to: STUDENT ACCOUNTS, 101 BROAD ST (KEHOE 101), PLATTSBURGH, NY 12901. Appeals must be filed within 5 business days from receipt of the citation with: UPD, 101 BROAD ST (HEALTH CTR), PLATTSBURGH, NY 12901
“Can you get rid of my ticket?”
It is a violation of ethics, and grounds for dismissal, for anyone other than the Appeals Board to dismiss a citation; except when a violation is a first offense for ‘no permit visible’ or ‘permit expired’, or when there is a ticket writer error.
