Traffic Regulations / Accidents

Authority to Enforce Traffic Regulations
Lee College has the authority to enforce certain traffic regulations by the Private Institutions of Higher Education Act, Section 1, Chapter 600.003, effective September 1, 1997.

Parking Permits

It is the responsibility of each student to obtain a vehicle parking permit for use of any vehicle operated on campus. The permit is obtained at the Security table during on-campus registration. After registration, parking permits are available at the Security Office in the Student Center, Room 102. Stolen or lost permits should be reported immediately. Students are responsible for any tickets accrued until a replacement permit is issued. Replacement permits are $2.

Accessible Parking

Accessible (handicapped) parking spaces are available throughout the campus. To prevent abuse, students or staff with a disability will need to display both the state issued handicapped parking permit and a special Lee College permit. To be eligible for this permit, the student must first obtain a special permission form through Disability Services in the Counseling Center. Proof of disability may be required. This form is then presented to the Security Office in the Student Center, Room 102, to obtain the accessible parking tag.

Parking

Students must park in designated student parking. Vehicle location is the responsibility of the owner. Violations will be given for:

  • Illegally parking in faculty or handicap
  • Exceeding campus speed limits
  • Backing into diagonal spaces
  • Parking on sidewalks or lawns
  • Double parking
  • Reckless driving
  • Loud music

The following violations are also subject to being towed:

  • Illegally parking in reserved or handicap spaces
  • Blocking a driveway or doorway
  • Parking in marked No Parking areas
  • Vehicles determined to be abandoned
  • Parking in fire zones
  • Blocking a fire hydrant
  • Not pulling completely into parking space

Students have 10 days to appeal a violation. Appeals must be submitted in writing to Security Development.

Accidents and Thefts

All accidents, thefts or offenses that occur on campus must be reported to the Security Services Office. Keep a record of all serial numbers of valuables. Mark your auto accessories so that they can be identified. Write your name in all textbooks. Do not leave valuables in your car. Always keep cars locked.

Motorcycles

Contact Security Services for parking locations. Do not park on the sidewalks or grass.

Auto Accidents — On-Campus

Contact Security Services at 9.281.425.6888 or #6888 and report the accident. The college has no responsibility for personal vehicles, but will assist in the exchange of driver information.

Auto Accidents — Off-Campus (in college vehicles)

Follow normal vehicle accident procedures. Exchange information for police reports. Insurance information is located in the glove box of each vehicle. If the accident is of a serious nature and injuries are involved or the college vehicle is disabled, contact Lee College Security Services office at 281.425.6888.

Car Trouble & Jump Starting

Contact #6888 from on campus or 281.425.6888 from off campus. Security officers are available 24 hours a day. As a courtesy, Security Services personnel will assist in some ways, but are not available for maintenance on vehicles.

Locked Car Doors

Students/employees must sign a release form prior to locked doors being opened with a “slim jim.” (This mechanism can damage door locks). Lee College is not responsible for damage.
