Guest Parking Permits

A Guest permit is issued by a Department head or administrative section. The Guest permit must have a date, time, name of guest, and issuing agent. In the event all of the above listed information is not on the guest permit, a citation may be issued. Any change to a temporary permit, however slight, may result in a citation being issued.

The officer will then check box #1 and circle the fine, and explain the citation in the comments box, i.e., “Vehicle parked in handicap stall without a valid DMV placard."

Parking Permit Grace Period

A two week “grace period” is allowed for Fall and Spring semesters. A one week “grace period" is in place for summer. The grace starts the first day of the Antelope Valley College term (not CSUB, AVUHSD or other programs that may be on a different academic calendar).  The grace period only applies to the use of daily and semester parking permits for general parking. Handicapped parking (including the misuse of handicap placards), staff parking, visitor parking and red zone violations are enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year around. After the grace period, general parking permits are required Monday through Friday, 8 am to midnight, 8 am to 4 pm on Saturdays. No permits are required on Sundays.

Red Curb Violations

A red curb violation occurs when a vehicle stops at the curb, not just when the vehicle is parked at the curb. The law is very specific, no stopping, standing or parking allowed at a red curb. An officer does not need to make contact with a driver to issue a red curb violation, in the event a violation occurs, the officer simply writes the citation and the violator will be notified via mail. Just because a violator leaves, does not mean the citation cannot go forward.

Green Reserve Zone Violations

To park in a green reserve space, a vehicle must display a black employee permit. Only an authorized employee of this institution is authorized to utilize the green parking stalls. Family members using the employee permits are not authorized to park in the green reserve spaces and may be cited for the offense. Security and sheriff spaces are strictly forbidden at any time.
