There are several reasons cars may towed on campus:
- Illegally Parked Cars: Plymouth State has the right to remove any vehicle parked contrary to rules and regulations, or causing a safety hazard or inconvenience. Towing in these situations is at the owner’s expense. The University accepts no financial liability for any costs or damages resulting from vehicles being towed from PSU property.
- Flooding: Vehicles in East Side Parking sometimes have to be moved because of the threat of high water or flooding. Usually University Police has some warning and can take steps to notify people to move their vehicles onto the main campus. However, from time to time we’ve been surprised with rapidly rising river waters and have had very little time for notification. After making notification as best we can, we sometimes have to call in a wrecker to remove vehicles to avoid damage from the high water. Vehicles that do not have a permit or are parked illegally in those lots will be removed at the owner’s expense. Owners of permitted vehicles with appropriate current student information on file will be notified, usually by e-mail which is sent out to all permit holders, telling them to move.
- Construction or Special Circumstances: Sometimes vehicles are legally parked, but may be in a situation where they are causing a problem for construction or maintenance. In these cases we may need to have them removed by calling a wrecker. Be sure your vehicle is permitted and your current correct information on file with Iparq so we can reach you to deal with a situation with your vehicle.
