Parking & Motor Vehicle Information
Traffic and parking regulations are necessary to ensure the safety of the University community and our guests. The following regulations are designed to promote the safe flow of traffic on our campus and to provide as much on-campus parking as possible. The online version of these traffic regulations is the most up-to-date and shall be regarded as the official guide to parking and driving on Drew University’s campus. All members of the community are responsible for reviewing and adhering to the following guidelines.
Motor Vehicle Ticket Appeals
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
- Tickets MUST be appealed within 5 days of the violation. After the 5th day, the right to appeal is lost and you are responsible for all fines associated with the ticket.
- Towing and Impound fees may not be appealed.
To appeal a ticket, please pick up a parking ticket appeals form outside of the Campus Security office in the Pepin Services Center building. Follow the instructions on the form and place the completed form in the bin labeled “Return Completed Forms Here.” Please make sure to include the date, time, and nature of the violation, as well as a written paragraph adding the reasoning and supporting information for why the violation should be changed/overturned. These appeals will be heard and decided upon by staff in Campus Security, who are not responsible for the initial issuance of the violation.
For those appealing more than one ticket, you must file a separate appeals form for each ticket
