Parking citations (Notices of Parking Violations) are issued by the University Police Department in an effort to enforce the regulations outlined in the CSUMB Traffic and Parking Regulations.
Pay a citation
Unfortunately, cash payments are not accepted. However, there is a pay station in the lobby that will accept Visa, Discover, American Express, Master Card, and echeck.
Parking citations can be paid or contested online.
Citation penalty fines
The dollar amounts for parking violation fines can be found in the Schedule of Parking Penalties.
Contest a citation
If you wish to contest a Notice of Parking Violation issued by the UPD, you must follow the following procedures:
Within 21 days after the issuance of a Notice of Parking Violation or within 14 days from the mailing of a Notice of Delinquent Parking Violation, you may contest the Notice of Parking Violation online at pmbonline.org.
You will receive an e-mail notification from the UPD whether your request for cancellation is approved or denied. If your Request for Citation Review is denied, you may request an Administrative Hearing.
An Administrative Hearing provides you the opportunity to contest a Notice of Parking Violation after an Administrative Review. (40200.7 CVC)
To obtain an Administrative Hearing you must request it within 21 days of the determination of the Administrative Review (first level). To request an Administrative Hearing, you must contact PMB at 1-800-700-4417.
To request a court review you must, within 30 days of mailing of the Hearing Examiner’s decision, file a request for review with the Monterey County Municipal Court. (40230(b) CVC)
To request a Court appeal, you must contact the Parking Management Bureau at 1-800-700-4417. The Court requires a $25.00 filing fee to process an appeal.
The court receives and reviews the file of the Administrative Review and the Administrative Hearing. The reviewer renders a decision and notifies the UPD and the appellant (you).
There are no provisions under law to conduct administrative reviews or administrative hearings if statutory time limits for filing are not met. If the time frames outlined above are not met, all parking penalties and late fees must be paid.
