Traffic and Parking Regulations - Appeals
Citations may be appealed for mitigating circumstances. Persons wishing to appeal an issued citation should complete the appeal form at the following location: http://www.cf.edu/departments/sa/sab/traffic_court.htm.
CF’s Traffic Court is conducted through the Student Activities Board, the central governing student group on campus. The Student Traffic Court consists of three students who serve as Court Justices and is conducted on specified Mondays and Wednesdays at 12 noon in Building 5 Room 106. Appearances before the court are on a first-come, first-served basis. All students filing an appeal are required to appear before the Court. Students only enrolled in evening classes or who attend a CF campus other than Ocala may request that their appeal be considered without their attendance. Failure to appear as scheduled will result in an automatic denial of the appeal.
NO APPEAL WILL BE CONSIDERED WHICH IS BASED ON IGNORANCE OR MISUNDERSTANDING OF THE TRAFFIC AND PARKING REGULATIONS.
When an appeal is denied by the Traffic Court, the fine must be paid.
When an appeal is approved by the Traffic Court, the Vice President for Student Affairs will notify the Public Safety Department, and the citation will be voided and withdrawn from the records.
Parking citations appeals must be filed within 10 business days of the issued date. Failure to submit the appeal within 10 days of issue will result in an automatic denial of the appeal – and the ticket must be paid.
