Subject: Year-end report of the Traffic Appeals Board
Date: Fri, 07 Jun 2002 11:33:44 -0700
To the University Senate:
The Traffic Appeals Board is composed of six members: two faculty, two management or classified, and two students. The Board meets five or six times a year depending on the number of appeals referred by the Traffic Petitions Officer. The main task of the Board is to consider the appeals and by a majority vote determine whether the Board upholds the decision of the Petitions Officer or dismisses the violation or imposes an alternative penalty (fine). The average number of appeals at each meeting is twenty-three.
In the process of considering appeals the Board members have expressed concern regarding parking violations that occur repeatedly in certain areas (lots) on the campus. Another concern is signage. Members agree that the University parking signs, although consistent in design, are too unobtrusive and are difficult to read from a vehicle. The Board also agrees that the student members make an important contribution to discussion and decision making and wishes that they would attend the meetings more often. Last year's Board submitted to the Department of Public Safety a detailed and comprehensive set of suggestions proposing changes in the campus parking and traffic regulations.
