Parking stickers must be displayed properly to avoid tickets

As of Monday, Sept. 15 parking enforcement began at NMC in all parking lots. The Traverse City Police Department has passed along some information for everyone on how to avoid parking tickets on campus by having your parking sticker displayed correctly:

  • Place your sticker in the bottom left hand corner of your windshield.
  • Place your sticker right side up. An upside-down sticker will be considered invalid.
  • Be sure that the expiration date on your sticker can be seen from the outside of your vehicle. (Some vehicles have a tint on the edges of their windshield, be sure your sticker is not behind a tint, as it will make it difficult to see from the outside.) When it doubt, get out of your vehicle and be sure you can see the entire sticker from the outside.

If you have any questions about parking enforcement on campus please call (231) 995-1111. (more…)
