- Section 3.01 of the UCD Traffic and Parking Code authorizes the UCD Chief of Police or his/her representatives, including the Parking Manager or supervisors at UCDHS, to appoint parking representatives to enforce all of the provisions of the UCD Traffic and Parking Code and all applicable provisions of the California Vehicle Code on the University, as provided by Section 23501 of the Education Code and Section 830 of the Penal Code of the State of California.
- Persons who feel they have received an unjustified parking citation must contact Parking and Transportation Services within 21 days of the citation date, or 14 days of the notice of delinquent citation, to request a citation Review. The violator will be asked to provide a written explanation of why the citation was issued in error or why the citation should be dismissed. If it is established that the citation was issued in error or the violator was involved in an extreme emergency situation, the citation may be considered for dismissal. If the violator does not agree with the results of the Citation Review, he/she may request a hearing before a Parking Hearing Officer.
