New parking meter violation fine structure

The Parking Department is pleased to announce a change to the fine structure for university parking meter violations, implementing a progressive fine program, effective July 1, 2018.
The new parking meter violation fine structure:

-          First violation: $0 fine (FREE!) – will receive a friendly reminder
-          Second violation: $25 fine
-          All subsequent violations:  $40 fine 
-          Each vehicle can reset the fine progression after 366 consecutive days of no violation.
This new structure is advantageous and customer-friendly to campus visitors and those who occasionally forget to pay the meter by accident, while trying to discourage habitual offenders. It also mimics the City of Champaign fine structure helping to remove confusion among parking users.
This new fine structure will take effect July 1, 2018.
