Traffic and Parking Regulations
Seminole State's traffic and parking rules are strictly enforced at all times on all campuses. Motorists who fail to adhere to these regulations will be penalized.
General Rules and Regulations
- Students, faculty, staff and visitors must park in designated parking areas at all times. All parking lots are color coded and designated as follows:
- Student parking: White-lined spaces
- Faculty/Staff parking: Orange-lined spaces
- Visitor parking: Green-lined spaces
- ADA-accessible parking: Blue-lined spaces
- Fire lanes and emergency vehicle parking: Red-lined areas (no parking at any time)
- No parking areas: Yellow-lined areas (includes yellow curbing)
- Motor vehicles operated by students, faculty and staff must be registered with the College and display a current parking permit at all times. Visitors do not need to register their vehicle or obtain a permit but must park in designated "Visitor" parking at all times, unless otherwise directed by a Safety and Security officer or other authorized College official.
- Vehicles must be parked within the designated lines of the parking space.
- Parking is not permitted in areas that are not posted or lined for parking, unless designated as temporary parking by the College.
- Seminole State assumes no responsibility or liability for loss or damage to any vehicle, or its contents, while it is operated or parked on College property.
- Bicycles, mopeds, motorcycles and other two-wheeled vehicles must only park in designated areas.
- Temporary parking permits may be obtained for students and employees who are temporarily driving a different vehicle. These permits are issued by Safety and Security for a time-limited period.
- The maximum speed on any campus roadway is 25 mph, unless otherwise posted. The maximum speed in any campus parking lot is 10 mph.
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-accessible parking is controlled by Florida law (FSS 316.1955, 316.1957 and 316.1959) and requires a valid placard or license plate issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Safety and Security cannot issue ADA permits and is not authorized to give anyone permission to park in these spaces without the state-issued placard or license plate.
- The Safety and Security Office should be notified immediately of all disabled motor vehicles on campus. Owners of disabled vehicles will be given 48 hours to remove the vehicle from campus. After 48 hours, the vehicle will be considered abandoned and towed at the owner's expense.
- Motorists may not park in a manner that obstructs any other vehicle or disrupts the flow of traffic. Violators may be towed immediately at the owner's expense.
- Overnight parking requires prior approval by Safety and Security and is at the owner's risk.
- Parking on sidewalks, in grassy areas, along curbs or in striped access aisles is prohibited, unless specifically directed by Safety and Security. Parking in designated fire lanes is prohibited at all times.
- Parking trailers, motor homes or similar recreational vehicles is at the discretion of the College and requires prior approval of Safety and Security.
