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.
Payment of fines
Fines can be paid online with a credit card or in person at the SAIT Parking Office, Campus Centre, room V215. In-person payment is accepted by cash, cheque, debit, Visa and MasterCard.
Appeal of a parking fine must be submitted within five days following the ticket's issue date.
Infraction tickets can be appealed in the following cases:
- Mechanical failure of parking payment devices (only when no other functioning device was available.)
- A factual error in the parking ticket, including location, license plate number or date and time.
- Genuine extenuating circumstances over which the appellant had no control.
Appeals can be made online or by obtaining a notice of appeal form from the SAIT Parking Office. Appeals made outside of the required time allowance or made without a proper justification will be denied.
