Parking Violation Resolution

Parking enforcement is continuous for violators of handicap, fire zones, and prohibited parking areas. Permit violations are enforced with time restrictions throughout the year. DPS issues parking violation tickets to vehicles parked in violation of Flint ordinances and university regulations.

All parking enforcement violations are submitted to the 67th District Court. The 67th District Court has complete authority over the final disposition of all violations.

DPS does not resolve any parking enforcement action (ticket/violation). Individuals who wish to contest a parking violation or those who wish to review the fine schedule are referred to the 67th District Court.

This process ensures fair, impartial and ethical resolutions to disputed parking enforcement action on the UM-Flint campus.

Resolution options include contesting the violation or paying the fine.
