Vehicles not in motion will be considered parked whether occupied or left unattended. The responsibility for finding a legal parking space rests with the motor vehicle operator. Lack of space in any lot or other parking area is not considered a valid excuse for violation of these regulations. In all cases in which a motor vehicle is parked, the position shall be such that the whole of the vehicle is located within the boundaries of the individual parking space selected, if the space is so marked. The fact that other vehicles are parked improperly shall not constitute an excuse for improper parking.
Vehicles must be parked in a way that will not constitute a serious hazard, or impede vehicular or pedestrian traffic movement, or the operation of emergency vehicles or equipment. Parking is not permitted in lot aisles or in a manner that blocks entrances or exits.
The fact that any vehicle is parked in violation of a regulation contained herein and does not receive a ticket does not mean that said regulation is no longer in effect.
For the purpose of these regulations, any motor vehicle parked on campus Monday through Friday, that does not display a current University parking decal or other University parking permit is presumed to be unregistered and may be ticketed as such (except as noted in Alternate Vehicle section below).
In the event that any registrant must operate and park an unregistered vehicle on campus due to the temporary unavailability of his or her registered vehicle, the registrant should, at his or her earliest convenience upon arrival on campus with such unregistered vehicle, notify the UConn Police Department of the situation. If such notification is not made, any parking tickets issued will be the responsibility of the registrant. An unregistered vehicle may be brought on campus in this manner for no more than two days in any one week. If it must be used three or more days in any week, the alternate vehicle must be registered (see Registration section above).
Any vehicle parked on campus and displaying a stolen, misbegotten, altered or counterfeit decal will also be regarded as an unregistered vehicle and may be ticketed as such in addition to the sanctions provided (see Registration section above).
No motor vehicle may be parked in an area or at a time for which it does not display the appropriate decal or other University parking permit. Parking in a restricted area without authorization and overnight parking are prohibited.
