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.
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 up to $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.
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.
It is the policy of Harford Community College that the College is a smoke- and tobacco-free environment. The use of any type of tobacco product, smoking device or equipment, or any item that simulates smoking (i.e. e-cigarettes) is prohibited in all buildings and areas of the campus and off-campus sites supervised by the College. Violators of the tobacco policy are subject to a $50 fine and/or disciplinary action. Employees and students who observe others violating the policy are expected to inform the violators of the policy and/or contact the Department of Public Safety.
To appeal a traffic violation citation you must be submit an Appeal of Traffic Violation Form within 120 days of the violation. Fines that have been paid may still be appealed within 120 days of the violation. If a fine is waived by the Traffic Appeals Committee, the violator will receive a refund for the fine paid. Appeal forms are also available at the Welcome Center or the Department of Public Safety. Completed forms must be returned to the Welcome Center, Harford Community College, 401 Thomas Run Road, Bel Air, MD 21015.
All decisions made by the Traffic Appeals Committee are final
Fines are levied for each violation of the traffic, parking, and related regulations and must be paid within 30 days of the citation date. Failure by employees to pay fines could lead to additional charges and/or revocation of reserved parking privileges. Flagrant or continuous disregard for parking and traffic regulations or for the safety of others will result in revocation of operating privileges on campus. Persons with unpaid fines are considered to have a debt to the College and may have a hold placed on their accounts. Fines must be paid before registration and records activities and services will be provided. In addition to a fine, students may also be subject to disciplinary action. Vehicle owners are responsible for all parking and traffic related fines. Failure to pay fines could lead to action by a commercial collection agency.
Accumulation of three or more unpaid parking and traffic fines may result in the towing of the vehicle. Fees for parking and traffic violations should be paid at the Cashier’s Office in the Student Center, or mailed to the Cashier’s Office, Harford Community College, 401 Thomas Run Road, Bel Air, MD 21015.
