You can pay or contest your citation online:

Yes. At both CHC and SBVC, parking permits are required in student and staff parking lots.
No. Permits are virtual. Physical decals will not be issued.
Yes. Citations are like any other ticket issued by a police or parking agency and are legally binding.
If you neglect to take care of any outstanding citation, the ticket will incur a fine, the fine will double and a DMV hold will be placed on the vehicle.
A DMV hold occurs when a citation that is past due has incurred penalties, and the DMV has been notified to suspend the vehicle’s registration until full payment for the citation is made.

If there are multiple citations, full payment would need to be made before DMV would issue the current registration.
Yes, a permit is needed to park on district property. Students with a Disabled Placard and a valid parking permit may park in any of the assigned disabled parking spaces on campus.
