Philosophy of Parking Enforcement

University of California, San Francisco
Transportation Services

An effective parking enforcement program must protect and fairly apportion scarce parking space for all legitimate users by insuring that those who violate parking regulations are penalized for doing so. Penalties for non-payment of citations must be strong enough to discourage violators for being scofflaws. For repeat offenders who fail to observe parking regulations and fail to pay outstanding parking fines, towing and impounding should be expected consequences.

For those who contest a citation, the adjudication process should be just and timely; it must contribute to the overall goal of discouraging illegal parking by enforceing parking regulations, but in a way that provides a fair and impartial hearing for all.
