Appeal a Ticket

If you have received a UNCG parking citation and believe it was issued in error, an appeal may be submitted within seven (7) days of the date the citation was issued.


Appeals Process

  1. Complete and submit an online appeal form. Make sure you have the citation number and plate number available. Both are required fields to complete the online appeal. Paper appeal forms are available in the parking office adjacent to the Walker Avenue Parking Deck, 506 Stirling Street.
  2. Appeals are processed by a student appeals board within (7) – (10) days of submission. Board decisions are communicated via email. If no email address is provided, a letter is sent via US postal service.
  3. If the appeal is granted, no fine is due.
  4. If the appeal is upheld, you have a right to a re-appeal appointment. Please call (336) 334-5681.
  5. Should your re-appeal be upheld, you would be required to pay the ticket fine. [Instead of paying for a ticket, students also have the option of participating in the UNCG Parking Citation – Community Service Initiative (CSI). This option provides you with the opportunity to utilize community service through POCAM as an alternative to paying one specified parking citation per academic year (limited to Spring and Fall semesters). ]

Re-appeals are heard by a Campus Enterprises representative on Wednesdays and Thursdays, between 1:30 PM and 3:30 PM, each week during the academic year (Fall and Spring semesters) with a modified schedule during summer sessions. Times are subject to change.

Please remember drivers bear the burden of proof when contesting a parking citation.

Booting

A boot is an immobilization device placed on the wheel of a vehicle, making it one of the strongest educational enforcement tools used by Parking Operations. Vehicle(s) with any combination of three (3) or more paid or unpaid citations* (warnings and/or tickets) may be booted. Three (3) or more boots will result in an automatic tow upon the next violation.

When a vehicle is booted, the driver must come to the parking office located adjacent to the Walker Avenue Parking Deck and meet with a parking representative to discuss strategies for avoiding additional tickets, boots, and tows. The $40 boot removal fee plus any outstanding citations must be paid before the vehicle will be released. This fee may NOT be appealed. Fees may be paid by cash, MasterCard, or Visa. Students and employees also have the option of paying by check. If the parking office is not contacted within two (2) hours, the vehicle will be towed.

If your vehicle is booted, please do not try to remove or disengage the boot. The penalty for unauthorized removal of a boot will be equal to cost of repair or replacement of the device, approximately $300.


Towing

Towing is a penalty for repeat offenders and for vehicles parked in reserved spaces, fire lanes, driving lanes, and other undesignated areas.

When a vehicle is towed, the driver must bring photo identification (driver’s license or student id card) to the parking office located adjacent to the Walker Avenue Parking Deck to collect the tow stub. All outstanding citations must be paid before the tow claim stub is released.

Parking operations contracts with an outside towing agency to have vehicles removed from campus. Towing and vehicle storage fees must be paid directly to:


Bobby’s Friendly Towing and Recovery
136 Montlieu Avenue
Greensboro, NC 27409
(336) 854-1410


NOTE: Citation history cycles are recorded August 1 to August 1 each year. Students and employees begin each academic year with a clean parking record.
