Tips for Avoiding Citations Immobilized/Barred Vehicle Vehicles may be immobilized for violating university parking regulations and/or state laws. Any attempt to move an immobilized vehicle or remove the wheel immobilizer may cause serious damage to the vehicle and will result in a $225.00 fine. Any damage caused to the wheel immobilizer or vehicle by such an attempt will be the sole responsibility of the driver. In order to remove the wheel immobilizer, the driver must pay a $55.00 immobilizer fee, and all outstanding parking citations. If the parking fines are not paid within 72 hours, the vehicle will be towed at the owner's expense to the wrecker service's establishment unless other conditions apply. If Your Vehicle Is Immobilized In all cases when an auto-boot immobilizer is utilized to disable a vehicle, the officer placing the boot on the vehicle will immediately place a completed "Warning Immobilization Notice" on the windshield (driver's side) of the vehicle and/or on the driver's side door. If you find such a notice on your vehicle, contact Parking Services or University Police immediately. Any attempt by the owner to move the vehicle or remove the immobilizer while the auto-boot immobilizer is in place may result in damage to the vehicle and a $225.00 fine. Reasons For Immobilization The vehicle wheel immobilizer will be installed and an Immobilizer/Barred Vehicle citation issued in one or all of the following situations: A motor vehicle that displays an altered, defaced, duplicated, counterfeited permit, or is displaying a permit that has been reported to the University Police as lost or stolen. A motor vehicle that has received three or more outstanding parking citations regardless of the 10 business day policy in which a citation can be paid or appealed. Citations that are under appeal will not be considered an outstanding citation. The wheel immobilizer will not be removed until all outstanding citations are paid. A motor vehicle is placed on probation when the vehicle has three (3) or more unpaid citations. A motor vehicle does not display a current permit, does not display any license plate, and/or does not have a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) that can be read. A motor vehicle that blocks, hinders, or obstructs a legally parked vehicle, crosswalk, sidewalk, handicapped access area, service drive, or loading zone. A motor vehicle that is parked in any designated handicapped parking space without an official state handicapped license plate, placard, or permit, and without a university parking permit. Because of limited parking facilities and the increasing demand of space, a vehicle will not be allowed to occupy a parking space when in an inoperable condition for a period exceeding 24 hours. If Parking Services or the University Police are not notified, a notice of violation will be issued to the Vehicle. If the vehicle is not moved, it may be towed at the owner's expense.

Parking permits can be purchased online at our website during the on-line registration period. Once the online registration period has ended, all permit purchases must be made at the Parking Services office located at 400 Nunn Drive. I never received my permit in the mail. What should I do? Permits are mailed two to three weeks prior to the start of class. If you do not receive your permit by the Thursday prior to the start of class, please contact us. I no longer need my permit. May I return it for a refund? Parking Services will issue a 100% refund only for the first week of the semester. For the second and third week, will offer a 50% refund. After the third week of classes there is no refund. Why do part-time students have to pay the same amount for a parking permit as full-time students? In many cases, the number of credit hours taken is not related to the frequency of a student being on campus. A student taking 12 credit hours may be here just two days per week, while a student taking 6 credit hours may be on campus five days a week. This is not always the case, but you cannot compare frequency of parking to the number of credit hours/classes taken. Frequently Asked Questions How do I appeal a ticket? Learn how to submit your appeal and submit online. This form must be filed within 10 business days. Any appeal received after the 10 business days but within 21 business days, must be accompanied by the $5.00 filing fee and payment of the citation. Citations can not be appealed after 21 business days. Why do I get tickets for not displaying my permit when I have purchased one? The permit associates you with NKU. Without it anyone could park on campus. How do I obtain a temporary handicap permit? Please contact the Parking Services at (859) 572-5505.
