FOREWORD


The University of Florida is concerned for the well being
of its students, staff and faculty. The increased use of motor
vehicles and the continuing increase in demand for adequate
parking facilities on the campus have caused us to develop
policies and regulations that would reserve the use of automo-
biles to those who have real need for them. These regulations
are set forth here for the information of University personnel
and visitors. Special parking facilities are reserved for visi-
tors. The map inside illustrates the traffic and parking plan
and indicates visitor parking areas.

These policies and regulations are given the effect of law
by House Bill No. 314 which is quoted in part below:
"The Board of Control shall adopt and promul-
gate rules and regulations which it finds neces-
sary, convenient, or advisable for safety, wel-
fare and health of the students, faculty members,
and all other persons, governing traffic on the
grounds of each institutions of higher learning
under its management. . .

"When promulgated, said rules and regulations
shall have the force and effect of municipal ordi-
nances of the adjacent municipality and shall be
enforceable as such, as herein provided. All ordi-
nances of the adjacent municipality relating to
traffic which are not in conflict or inconsistent
with the traffic rules and regulations adopted by
the Board of Control shall extend and be applica-
ble to the grounds of the institution of higher
learning."

I. REGULATIONS APPLYING TO ALL PERSONS


Registration

1. All cars eligible under the established priorities to be
parked on the campus or cars maintained or operated by
students eligible under these regulations must be regis-
tered with the University Police Department and carry a
decal as specified by the Police Department. A decal
evidencing registration will be issued to the registrant
and shall be permanently affixed to the automobile wind-
shield in the lower right hand corner according to in-
structions on the reverse side of the decal. If the decal
is not attached in the prescribed manner, the registra-
tion shall be invalid and the owner of the automobile
shall be liable for the offense of "operating an automobile
without a valid permit. Operating or parking an auto-
mobile on the campus without a valid permit shall be
considered a major violation and penalties shall be as-
sessed as established by the Board of Control and in the
court designated by the Board of Control. Parking per-
mits and/or registration decals are issued to an individ-
ual car and its owner and are not transferable. A decal
must be removed from an automobile upon change of
ownership. Whenever there is a change of automobiles,
the old decal must be destroyed under the direction of
the University Police before a new decal is issued. Fail-
ure to comply will mean the applicant must pay an addi-
tional fee of $5. 00 to register his most recent car. Re-
producing or defacing a decal or permit in any way what-
soever is prohibited.
