Citations

RIT enforces parking regulations 365 days a year, including, holidays, weekends, and when the university is closed. Enforcement primarily occurs from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays, with intermittent enforcement after hours. 

 

Starting August 27, 2018, citation fees will have a base fine.  Fines increase $5 with each subsequent citation assigned to the same vehicle, regardless of the type of citation.  In addition, vehicles that accumulate multiple unpaid citations within a 90-day period may be subject to being booted with an assessed administrative fee of $50.00. 

 

The following fines are associated with violations. Please note that escalations will continue to increase after the fifth offense.
