Traffic and Parking Infractions

In order to keep SAIT a safe environment for all campus commuters and maintain a high-level of service for those that park on campus, infraction tickets are given to vehicles that do not comply with parking and transportation regulations.

Tickets range from $45 to $300 — if a vehicle displays a stolen, counterfeit, altered or illegally transferred permit, a maximum fine of $300 will be applied. Vandalism, property damage and fraudulent behaviour will also result in a maximum fine and/or restitution.

Failure to purchase parking will result in vehicle being unauthorized. Unauthorized vehicles will be ticketed and/or towed at owner’s expense.

Outstanding tickets twenty (20) days or more will result in loss of privilege of operating or parking a vehicle on campus. Vehicle is suspended until the penalty has been paid. A suspended vehicle on campus will be subject to additional fines, removal, impoundment, and/or immobilization. If your vehicle is immobilized a removal fee will apply.

Below is a summary of parking infractions and the associated fine.
