In order to maintain an orderly flow of traffic, provide reasonable and convenient parking, and create a safe atmosphere for all persons at the College, the following guidelines apply to all students, employees, and visitors of Harford Community College.
Designated motorcycle parking can be found in lots A, C, F, and J. The enlarged spaces are designed to be shared by two or more motorcycles.
Students are urged to explore alternative routes to and from campus. Accidents or other road closures are not uncommon, and knowing these alternatives will allow you to arrive on time or save time when traveling to and from campus. In the event of an emergency, students may be required to use a different route. A pamphlet with alternative routes and step-by-step directions is available from the Department of Public Safety.
The Department of Public Safety issues citations for traffic and parking violations. High-speed driving, reckless driving, and failure to yield to pedestrians may result in revocation of operating privileges on campus in addition to a fine of $150.
The maximum speed limit on campus is 15 MPH. Pedestrians have the right-of-way at all times.
There are more than 2,100 open and shared spaces available on the HCC campus. At key times each day, traffic and congestion on campus reach a peak. These times usually coincide with the starting and ending times of classes between 8:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and between 6:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Students planning to arrive for classes at these times should allow at least 30 minutes for locating a parking space and walking to their classrooms.
Parking will not always be available adjacent to the classroom location. Students should watch the HCC marquee sign at the corner of Thomas Run Rd. and Rt. 22 for traffic and parking information and avoid trying to access the lots indicated as FULL on the sign.
To avoid congestion, parking in the T, J North, or W lot and walking to the desired location is suggested.
Visitors are invited to park in any undesignated parking space. Vehicles parked in designated parking spaces (disability, employee, etc.) without displaying valid permits will be ticketed.
State law allows for towing of vehicles from fire lanes without warning or notification. Fire lanes are clearly marked, and this law will be strictly enforced for the safety of the community.
Appeals to parking or traffic citations must be submitted within 120 days of the citation, using the Appeal of Traffic Violation form available at the Welcome Center in the Student Center.
All decisions of the appeals committee are final.
Vehicle owners are responsible for all traffic-related fines regardless of who was driving the vehicle at the time of violation. Fines must be paid before further registration and records activities and services will be provided. Failure to pay fines could also lead to action being taken by a commercial collection agency.
Flagrant or continuous disregard for traffic regulations or the safety of others will result in revocation of operating privileges on campus. Accumulation of three (3) or more unpaid fines may result in the towing of the vehicle.
Fees for parking and traffic violations are payable at the Cashier's Office located in lower level of the Student Center, or mailed to the Cashier's Office, Student Center, Harford Community College, 401 Thomas Run Road, Bel Air, MD 21015.
