POLICY STATEMENT

(1) In order to facilitate the operation of campus traffic flow and parking lots of the University, the following rules and regulations are hereby established and are enforceable under authority provided by ORS 352.360.

(2) All motor vehicle laws of the State of Oregon including specifically, but not limited by, ORS chapters 801 through 822, together with amendments hereafter adopted, are applicable to the campus of Western Oregon University to the same extent as if this campus and its streets were public highways, and all provisions of said motor vehicle laws are applicable and enforceable. State motor vehicle laws shall apply should any of these parking rules and regulations be found inconsistent and incompatible.

(3) Western Oregon University, through the President and other administrative officers designated by her/him, is hereby authorized to place these rules and regulations into effect and to provide for the enforcement thereof through the appointment of peace officers, public safety officers and parking attendants, pursuant to ORS 352.360(5).

(4) The parking lots are for the use of faculty, staff, students, and guests of the Oregon University System. All persons -- faculty, staff, students, visitors and commercial representatives -- who park in University-owned permit parking lots must obtain and display a permanent or temporary permit or service permit. Vehicles cited for failure to display such permits are subject to penalty as assessed by the University. Western Foundation-owned property may be enforced upon request by the Western Foundation staff for those vehicles found in violation as defined in ORS 98.810-812.
