It is the responsibility of the owner/operator to report a disabled vehicle to the University Police Department and Security/Parking Office and complete a disabled vehicle report.
- The person operating the vehicle must remain with it until the officer arrives to determine if there is a hazard
- If a hazard exists, the operator must arrange to have it removed immediately, otherwise the operator has 24 hours to remove the vehicle from campus
- Failure to notify University Police concerning a disabled vehicle will result in the operator being held responsible for any parking tickets issued to that vehicle and./or any fee associated with removal of the vehicle from campus
Accidents and Inoperable Vehicles
Accidents involving vehicles that occur on University property (where there is any injury, no matter how slight, or the vehicle is inoperable) must be reported immediately to the University Police Department where the owner/operator must complete a disabled vehicle report.
- University Police must be notified of any vehicle that becomes inoperable: 4 way flashers or notes on the vehicle are not considered sufficient notice
- The driver must return to and stay with the vehicle (unless you are advised otherwise by the dispatcher) until a University Police officer arrives to determine if there is a hazard. If he/she determines the vehicle is a hazard, the operator must arrange to have it removed immediately; otherwise, the operator has 24 hours to remove the vehicle from campus
- Any vehicle that is determined to be a hazard by University Police can be removed at the request of the department. The owner of the vehicle will be responsible for any charges associated with the removal and any parking ticket that is issued
- Vehicles found in violation of parking guidelines will not have fines excused because the vehicle is determined to be inoperable, if the operator of the vehicle failed to notify the department of its location and condition
- Accident reports are available to the named parties in the report or upon written request for your insurance company. There is a $5 fee charged for each copy
