VEHICLE IMMOBILIZATION AND TOWING

The University reserves the right to immobilize or impound (tow) any motor vehicle, moped, motorcycle, or bicycle on campus grounds in violation of parking regulations. Situations requiring immobilization or towing include, but are not limited to, parking illegally in a reserved or disability stall and parking in prohibited areas that affect health and safety (such as fire lanes or in front of a fire hydrant).
