In order to provide a safe and efficient traffic system that insures maximum
vehicle and pedestrian protection, all motor vehicles operated on the campus by
Hendrix College faculty, staff, and students must be registered with the Department
of Public Safety.
All vehicle registration forms and decals are available
from the Department of Public Safety on Washington Ave.
A registration form must
be turned in before a student decal can be issued. The $80.00 decal fee will be
charged to every student’s account. Students who do not intend to operate on campus
will receive a refund of the fee upon completion of a vehicle waiver form. If more
than one vehicle is to be used on campus, each of the vehicles must be registered.
After the purchase of one decal, additional decals may be obtained at no charge.
To register a vehicle, the following information is required: year, make, model,
color, and license number [Example: 1999, Ford Mustang, 2-door, red, Lic. #ABC 123
Decals must be permanently affixed to the left rear bumper or the lower left
of the rear windshield and to the rear fender of motorcycles. Prior to application,
make sure that the area is clean and dry. It is not permissible for a decal to be
taped or displayed from the vehicle interior.
The vehicle owner is responsible for all violations committed by a vehicle displaying
the decal issued to the owner. If one loans his or her vehicle, its proper operation
is the owner’s responsibility. Persons operating a vehicle on the Hendrix campus
are held responsible for acquainting themselves with and obeying the traffic regulations
of the College. Vehicles bearing the registration decal on the left rear bumper
or window (rear fender of motorcycles) are entitled to use the roadways and parking
areas on campus as specified in the Traffic and Parking Regulations brochure.
Temporary registration decals are available from the Department of Public Safety
at no charge. These decals are to be used by visitors remaining on campus for more
than one day and by students or staff using unregistered vehicles on campus for
short periods of time.

A Campus Disabled Permit is required on any vehicle registered to a Hendrix College
student, faculty, or staff member, in addition to state disabled licensing. The
Department of Public Safety will issue these permits to individuals who present
proof of a disabled permit or license plate. Such proof shall be the Disabled Person’s
Access to Parking Application Form issued by the state with the special plate or
placards. Temporary disabled permits are available from the Department of Public
Safety and are to be approved by the Chief of Public Safety.
Revoking Vehicle Registration
Vehicle registration may be revoked for individuals who repeatedly fail to comply
with the parking regulations of Hendrix College. An accumulation of 10 or more vehicle
operation violations will be deemed a refusal to comply with the vehicle operations
regulations, and a warning letter will be sent to the owner/operator of the vehicle.
After receiving advice and counsel concerning his or her traffic violations in writing,
an individual’s continued refusal to comply with the motor vehicle regulations at
Hendrix College will be sufficient cause for revoking the registration of the vehicle.
Upon evidence of such refusal, the Chief of Public Safety will notify the owner/operator
in writing that his/her registration decal has been voided, and that his/her vehicle
is barred from campus. A vehicle with a voided decal will be towed if it is found
in the campus parking lots, roadways, or other areas.
All fines, except No Decal, Parking in a Space Reserved for Disabled, and Parking
on Grass will be reduced by 50 percent if paid within 24 hours. Accumulation of
three citations for the No Decal violation could result in the vehicle being towed.
All fines are payable through Campus Mail or at the Business Office in Fausett Hall.
All traffic violation appeals must be in writing within thirty (30) calendar
days of the date of the citation. Appeal forms may be obtained from and returned
to the Department of Public Safety. All appeals will be turned over to the Traffic
Appeals Committee (which is the Subcommittee on Traffic and Parking of the Student
Senate). The decision of the appeals committee is final and will be recorded on
the bottom of the appeal form.
A copy of the completed form will be sent to the individual filing the appeal
and to the Department of Public Safety.
