No required permit:

Signs at the entrance to each parking lot indicate the type of permit that is required for the lot. In some cases, there may be limited areas for a given type of permit. These areas will have signage indicating the permit requirement.

Not within a space:

A parking space is defined by two parallel lines, painted white for all parking categories except residents, which are yellow. Vehicles not positioned between two parallel lines are illegally parked. Double lines indicate the end of each parking row.

Unauthorized parking in a reserved space:

Each reserved parking space is posted with signage that indicates the permit requirement for the space. Examples of these areas are:

· Reserved for Permit #####

· WCU Service Vehicle Only

· Persons with Disabilities Parking Area

Vehicle parked in areas other than spaces:

No parking, no matter how brief, is permitted on lawns, driveways, traffic lanes, sidewalks, crosswalks, fire lanes, or any other non-designated areas of the campus. Vehicles should not block refuse containers or loading docks. Violators will be towed.

Failure to obey traffic and parking control signage:

Traffic and parking control signs are posted on the roadways, parking lot entrances, and within the parking lots on campus. Posted signage supersedes printed materials, and temporary signs may be placed in exigent circumstances.
