Parking Enforcement

In an attempt to discourage illegal parkers from utilizing parking spaces otherwise available to permit holders, all parking zones are strictly enforced Monday through Sunday 8 a.m. - 11 p.m. Enforcement increases the chances of finding a parking space for those that pay for and properly link a valid UM parking permit to their vehicle. Violators of the University of Miami's Moving Parking Policies and Procedures (under review) will receive a parking citation.

Examples generally unsuccessful in the appeals process:

I was late for business or a personal appointment.
Being late does not allow the driver the privilege of parking illegally.

There was no place to park or the lot was full.
It is the driver’s responsibility to locate legal parking.

I was only parked for a few minutes.
A short stay does not mitigate the violation and does not allow the driver the privilege of parking illegally.

Nobody else around me got a citation.
Vehicles that are found in violation of parking rules are cited. The fact that a given vehicle may not be cited is not permission for another to violate the parking policy.

This violation has not been enforced in the past.
Prior lack of enforcement in no way constitutes a valid excuse for illegal parking.

I have done it for years.  Everybody does it.
This is not an acceptable excuse for illegal parking.

I did not see the citation on my vehicle.
Citations are considered legally delivered when placed on the vehicle windshield or receipt by mail.
