All vehicles operated and parked on College property by full- and part-time students, faculty, and staff must be registered with the college.
First-year resident students are not permitted to have cars on campus.
If parking in a restricted area temporarily for loading and unloading, it is beneficial to call the Department of Public Safety at 610-902-8245, turn on four-way flashers, and park for no more than 15 minutes.
Cabrini College reserves the right to boot or tow any illegally parked vehicle on campus without warning.
All vehicles parked on the traveled portion of the roadway are subject to being towed at the owner's expense.
The fine for all other parking violations is $30 unless otherwise noted. It is a violation to park an unregistered vehicle on campus or fail to display a valid parking permit properly.
Strict Enforcement of Violations of Handicapped Space
Handicapped parking is restricted to vehicles with:
Any vehicle not displaying valid identification that is parked in or blocks a marked handicapped space anywhere on campus—including the lots adjacent to residence halls—even for short periods of time (i.e., 1–5 minutes) shall, at a minimum, be subject to the following:
No immobilizing boot will be removed until the owner or person responsible for the vehicle pays in full all fines and fees due.
If the person responsible for the booted vehicle does not respond to the Public Safety Office within one hour of the boot being attached, the vehicle may be towed off campus by a private towing company.
All towing and storage costs will be the responsibility of the vehicle owner.
Paying Fines Parking fines may be paid online by going to www.scapay.com. Violators have 15 days to appeal or pay the fine.
After 15 days, the right to appeal is forfeited. After 20 days, a $10 late fee will be added. After 30 days, an additional $10 late fee will be added and the fine will be transferred to the violator's college bill.
Fines accumulated by visitors will be assessed to the person the violator is visiting.
Appeals In order to appeal a traffic violation, the registrant must file an appeal online at www.scapay.com within 15 days of the violation.
The registrant will receive an email notice of the violation on the date the ticket is written if they have registered their vehicle. Further notifications will be sent as the due date and final appeal date approach.
If the ticket is not paid or appealed in the allotted time additional costs will accrue. All questions or suggestions regarding parking should be addressed to the Director of Public Safety.
Boots When a vehicle is issued a fourth parking ticket or illegally parked in or blocking handicapped parking, the Department of Public Safety will apply an immobilizing boot to the vehicle, along with a sticker warning not to move the vehicle until the boot has been removed.
The registrant will be charged $75 for the removal of the boot.
If the registrant has not contacted the Public Safety Department to have the boot removed within one hour, the vehicle may be towed.
The registrant will be responsible for paying the towing charge.
Tampering with, damaging, or removing a parking boot will subject the registrant to a $300 fine.
What To Do If Your Car Is Booted
Towing The violation of College parking regulations by individuals who have accumulated a fourth ticket in the same academic year will result in the application of the boot, and the towing of the vehicle if the boot has not been removed within 24 hours.
The Department of Public Safety reserves the right to immediately tow vehicles which are in dangerous positions or are creating a hazardous condition.
In addition, the Public Safety Department also reserves the right to immediately tow any vehicle which, through its reckless operation, has created a danger to the College community.
Vehicles may also be towed immediately from tow-away zones, fire lanes, and roadways or driveways that they are blocking. Furthermore, vehicles may also be towed when registrants refuse to identify themselves.
Banishment After five offenses, the driver may be "banned" and not permitted to park or drive any vehicle on campus for the remainder of the academic year.
Drivers with fewer than five violations may be banned if any one violation is serious enough to warrant immediate suspension of all vehicle privileges. The decision to banish rests with the Director of Public Safety.
