Only Ticket Policy
Washington University in St. Louis will automatically void one parking violation (for no permit, incorrect zone or overtime at meter only) per fiscal year, July 1-June 30 if it is the only ticket issued. Only tickets need not be paid; no further action is necessary. If any second ticket is issued during the year, the owner/operator is responsible for paying ALL violations, including the first Only Ticket issued.
Forgetting to Display a Permit
If you were parked in the appropriate color zone for your parking permit and simply forgot to display your permit, parking services will void the citation. Voiding a citation for this reason may be done no more than five times per year.
To request your citation be voided, you may write your permit number on the parking citation and mail it in the provided envelope or come to the parking services office with your parking citation and parking permit or university ID so that we can verify your information and void the citation.
