Parking Violation Fines

The University of Richmond Parking and Transportation office is implementing a level accumulation fine structure.  Citation violations will fall under a specific Violation Level.  Each level will have its own violation fine accumulation structure.  The base fine will increase with each additional citation for the same violation.

Parking and Transportation may revoke parking privileges at any time for excessive fines, fraudulent registration, or irresponsible behavior while operating a vehicle on campus.
