Parking Appeals Committee

2002-2003 Annual Report 


The Parking Appeals Committee meets once a month on the third Wednesday of the month, to review all faculty and staff who have appealed their tickets in the previous month.  The average number or appeals increased greatly in the summer of 2002 when the university doubled most of its ticket fines.  This almost doubled the length of time that meetings took to about 3 hours, until the university driving community became aware of the increase in fine amounts.  It has since subsided greatly although still seems to be running higher than the previous years.  The review committee also permits people to appeal in person for which requests have averaged about one a month although the percentage of time that the person shows is about 50%.  Usually people are appealing handicap tickets in these appearances.
