Appeals of Violations Notices/Parking Privileges
File an Appeal for a Parking Violation
If you are logged on to a College computer using your Network ID, the Violations Appeals Tracker link will take you directly into the appeals system.
If you are off-campus or using your personal system, you will be prompted for your Keystone College Network ID and password. These are the same credentials you use to log on to College machines or to your College E-Mail account, however, do not add @keystone.edu to the ID when logging in to the Violations Appeals Tracker database.
About Appeals of Violations

- The Traffic Appeals Committee meets once a month and will reply via e-mail to all appeals within one week of the meeting.
- Appeal forms are available online only.
- Appeal forms must be submitted online within 10 (ten) calendar days of the date of the violation.
- Anyone whose parking privileges have been suspended may appeal the suspension to the Traffic Appeals Committee.

Handicapped Parking/Temporary Mobility Impairments
- Permanent Mobility Impairments: Individuals with permanent mobility impairments must have an official handicapped license plate or placard on their vehicle issued by the state the vehicle is registered in to park in any of the designated handicapped spaces on campus. In addition, students and employees must also possess valid campus parking permits.
- Temporary Mobility Impairments: Parking arrangements are available to individuals with documented temporary mobility impairments. Requests for a temporary handicapped parking permit must be accompanied by documentation from a physician and submitted to the Director of Campus Safety to be reviewed in conjunction with the Director of Health Services.
All disabled vehicles are to be reported to the Department of Campus Safety in order to avoid a violation. A specific period of time will be granted for the removal of a disabled vehicle, but must be coordinated with the Department of Campus Safety.
Parking on campus between the hours of 12:00 midnight and 5:00 am is prohibited (including commuters), except for resident students in designated resident student parking lots. Permission will be granted for disabled vehicles, vehicles belonging to people participating in college sponsored trips, and visitors. In all cases, the owner/operator must contact the Department of Campus Safety. Vehicles parked overnight without prior approval may be booted and/or towed.
