Traffic and Parking Regulations

PHSC provides convenient, free parking at all locations. College employees, students and visitors are expected to respect other drivers and pedestrians by following PHSC's traffic and parking regulations. Obeying these basic rules will help preserve a safe college environment and the natural beauty of our campuses. Drivers violating regulations are subject to receiving tickets by local law enforcement agencies. Vehicles parked inappropriately may be ticketed and/or towed at the owner's expense without prior warning. Please drive and park responsibly and avoid fines and costly towing fees by following these regulations.


  • Follow official traffic signs and signals as posted. The speed limit is 15 mph on all campus roads and parking lots
  • Watch for pedestrians. Pedestrians have the right-of-way
  • Report accidents and other incidents involving vehicles to local law enforcement agencies promptly. If injuries are suspected, call 911 and notify campus officials as soon as possible.

Do not park:

  • Within intersections, crosswalks, sidewalks or fire lane
  • Anywhere official traffic signs prohibit stopping, standing or parking
  • On grass or unpaved areas, unless clearly designated as overflow parking areas
  • Along curbs, berms or driving lanes, unless painted lines designate parking spaces
  • In a manner that obstructs driveways or disabled access ramps, or occupies more than one designated parking space
  • Longer than necessary. Overnight parking is prohibited without prior approval from the campus provost, the vice president of academic affairs and college provsot or from the director of college safety and security. PHSC assumes no liability for vehicles parked on College property.
  • In a disabled parking space unless the vehicle has a valid, handicapped parking permit issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles of the state in which the vehicle is registered. Owners of vehicles parked in disabled parking spaces without a permit are subject to receiving a ticket issued by a local law enforcement agency. Vehicles inappropriately parked in a handicapped space may be towed at the owner's expense.
