Registering your vehicle is important. In the case of an emergency involving your vehicle, the Park University Department of Campus Safety will use the registration number to locate and notify you of the emergency
Because of the importance of vehicle registration the following rules are in effect:
Tickets will be issued for the following violations:
The posted speed limit on the Parkville campus is 15 mph on all above ground roadways. The Commercial Underground speed limit is set at 10 mph. Please help keep the Parkville campus a safe place by observing the posted speed limit. Campus Safety Officers are equipped with a handheld directional radar device that will be utilized periodically throughout campus to ensure speed limits are being observed, and will also serve as an educational measure to increase awareness and safety on the Parkville campus. For more information on how the radar device is used, please contact our office at 816-584-6444.
Impounded vehicles will be towed by a bonded wrecker service or immobilized by the Park University Department of Campus Safety officers. The owner/operator of the vehicle is liable for the costs of towing and storage or release from immobilization devises. Impoundment charges must be paid directly to the impoundment company for vehicles that have been towed.
Citations may be appealed. If an appeal is upheld, a full refund of the appealed citation will be made. However, if the vehicle is impounded for prior unpaid citations, the tow fee will not be refunded. If a citation has been turned over to the Accounting Office, the total amount owed by the individual to the University will be due and payable. Owner/operators of vehicles towed and impounded may appeal the impoundment within 5 business days of the impoundment.
Vehicles towed by Park University will be towed by a company selected by Park University. Contact information for the company that towed a vehicle will be provided by the Campus Safety Office by calling 816-584-6444.
Vehicles are subject to being immobilized by Park University Department of Campus Safety officers with a wheel lock designed to prevent a vehicle from being moved. Wheel locks can be used at any time to impound vehicles for offenses including, but not limited to:
All immobilized vehicles that have not been released within 24 hours of application of wheel lock will be towed at owner’s expense. Penalties and/or fees will be assessed to the student’s account including any citation for violation at the time the vehicle is immobilized, the immobilization charges, and the tow charges.
All vehicles immobilized with a wheel lock shall have a notice affixed to the driver's side window. This notice shall indicate the procedure necessary to release the vehicle from impoundment. Owners of vehicles immobilized by wheel lock must contact Campus Safety at 816-584-6444, or speak with us in person at the Campus Safety Office to discuss the procedure on how to get the wheel lock removed.
Attempts to remove the wheel lock that result in damage to the wheel lock will result in appropriate fees being charged to the student’s account for the full cost of replacement.
Park University is not responsible for damage to vehicles associated with the placement of the wheel lock on an impounded vehicle.
The appeal procedure for vehicle immobilization is different than for vehicles who have received parking citations. If your vehicle has been immobilized with a wheel lock, you must contact the Department of Campus Safety within 24 hours of your vehicle being immobilized to pay the required fines and coordinate removal of the wheel lock.
