Parking citations are issued to vehicles parked in violation of the the adopted University's Enforcement Regulations. All penalties are due within 21 days of the violation. After that date, a Notice of Delinquency is mailed to the registered owner at the address on record with the Department of Motor Vehicles. If the citation becomes delinquent, a late fee will be added and a hold may be placed on your vehicle's registration. Please refer to the Parking Fine Schedule for a complete list of parking fines and late fees.

Contesting Your Citation

Contested citations must be appealed within 21 calendar days of the violation date. Citation Review Request Forms are available for pickup at Facilities Management or the Parking Kiosk or online. The response will be mailed back to you. If you disagree with the result of the appeal, you may request an Administrative Hearing.

Immobilization of Vehicles

If your vehicle has been issued five (5) or more parking citations and these citations have not been paid, the vehicle may be immobilized by a "wheel boot" or impounded at the owner's expense (CVC 22651 (i)(1)). To have an immobilized or impounded vehicle released you may pay the necessary fees to Parking & Commuter Services at the Humboldt State University Police Department.
