Payment of Fines & Appeal Process
California State University Channel Islands Transportation and Parking Services has
moved to a "paperless" process for the issuance of parking citations, payments and
appeals, which will enable those who receive citations to resolve them more efficiently
and conveniently online.
As with our previous citation process, violators will have twenty-one days to pay or appeal the citation. Citations may be paid and/or appealed by mail.
This process is coordinated off campus by Parking Management Bureau out of CSU, Stanislaus, and can be accessed by going on line to www.pmbonline.org. This process was adopted in response to our customers’ requests for an online process and is in keeping with the University's reputation of being the "Green Campus."
For additional information, please contact Transportation and Parking Services Customer Service by calling 805-437-8430 or e-mail email@example.com.
PAYMENT OF FINES
Parking citations may be paid online at www.pmbonline.org or by mail at:
One University Circle
Turlock, CA 95382
Late Payment of Fines
Failure to remit payment within 21 calendar days of the citation issue date will result in the mailing of a “Notice of Intent” to refer the delinquent account to collections. Failure to respond to the “Notice of Intent” within 14 calendar days will result in a fine increase, student account hold, and vehicle registration hold placed at DMV. Please contact Transportation and Parking Services at 805-437-8430 once citation is paid, to remove student account hold.
Appeal of Citation
Parking citation appeals may be requested online at www.pmbonline.org. Transportation and Parking Services reviews the citation and the contestant will be notified of results by email. The following reasons are not considered for appeal:
Ignorance of parking rules and regulations
Failure to see/read signage
Failure to locate a parking space, parking or stopping for a short period of time
Expired meter/time (not related to a mechanical malfunction)
Expiration of the 14 calendar day period following the mailing of the “Notice of Intent.”
Parking citation appeals must be filed within 21 calendar days from the issue date of the citation. Appeals received after the grace period are not eligible for review. Contestants must contact the Transportation and Parking Services office if they have not received a response to an appeal within 21 days of filing. Contestants are still responsible for the citation, even if they do not receive a response. CI follows the procedures for contesting parking violations as stated in the California Vehicle Code, Section 40215.
To contest the results of the initial citation review, contestants have 21 calendar days from the date of decision to request an Administrative Hearing. A request for an Administrative Hearing can be made online at www.pmbonline.org. The person requesting a hearing shall have the choice of a hearing by phone or in person (C.V.C. 40215(c)). In addition, the “full” amount of the parking penalty due must accompany the written request. Requests that do not meet the required deadline or include the full payment of the parking penalty will not be eligible for further review, and the decision of the issuing officer will stand. The citation will be processed pursuant to California Vehicle Code, Section 40220(a).
Assembly Bill 1228 (C.V.C. 40215(b)) allows a person to request a hearing without payment of the parking penalty upon satisfactory proof of inability to pay the amount due. If due to financial hardship, a request may be made to waive the required penalty deposit by completing a “Waiver of Penalty Deposit” form. This information must be submitted prior to the request for an Administrative Hearing.
Location of Hearings (In-Person)
Hearings are held at Transportation and Parking Services located in Placer Hall on Camarillo Street. On the day of an appointment, violators/contestants are required to be present at or before an appointed time. Please allow plenty of time for parking, as permits are required to park on campus. Bring copies of all applicable documentation relating to your appeal (i.e., vehicle registration, permit information, placards, etc.) that you wish to have considered.
Notification of the Decision
Results of the hearing will be mailed to the address listed on the “Request for Parking Citation Appeal” form within 15 days of the hearing date.
Failure To Appear
Failure to appear for the scheduled hearing as promised will result in forfeiture of penalty posted. If you decide to forfeit the posted penalty in lieu of appearance, please notify Transportation and Parking Services at least two (2) days before your scheduled appearance. If you need to reschedule, please contact Transportation and Parking Services prior to your hearing appointment at (805) 437-8430.
Rescheduling Administrative Hearings
Persons requesting a hearing are allowed to reschedule. If you need to reschedule, contact Transportation and Parking Services at (805) 437-8430 at least one full business day prior to your hearing appointment. Rescheduling requests will not be honored if less than one full business day notice is given. If hearing is not rescheduled within one business day or an appellant fails to appear for their scheduled hearing, the hearing will be conducted at the initial time. Rescheduled hearings will be held with or without the appellant in attendance.
Contesting the Results of the Hearing Officer
You will have the right to appeal the final determination of the Hearing Officer to the Superior Court of Ventura County within 21 days of the mailing date of your results. You will be required to process all necessary documents and post a non-refundable filing fee with the Court prior to scheduling your court hearing date. You may obtain all necessary court documents through the Superior Court of Ventura County, Traffic Division, located at 800 S. Victoria Ave., Room 118, Ventura, California 93009.
