Proper Display of Parking Permits
Semester parking permits must be displayed by hanging them from the rear view mirror, facing the rear of vehicle. Permits must be clearly visible from the outside of the vehicle. It is the owner’s responsibility to verify that the permit is clearly visible before leaving the vehicle. Vehicles with unusually sized mirrors or window tinting which causes the permit to not be clearly visible are subject to citation. Daily permits or paper temporary permits must be displayed by placing them face-up on the driver’s side of the dashboard of the vehicle. Expired permits or permits from other colleges, etc. should be removed so as to prevent any misidentification.
