The Office of Campus Safety hopes your stay with us is safe and pleasant. The following regulations for registration, operation, possession and use of vehicles are in effect for the safety and convenience of everyone, using AU property; students, faculty, staff and guests alike. Persons who own, possess, or operate a vehicle on AU property are obliged to know these regulations. Ignorance does not constitute a valid defense for failing to observe any of the regulations, or absolve violators from any penalties described herein. With rare exception, the penalty for violations of regulations is imposed against the vehicle rather than against its operator and the owner of the vehicle in violation becomes responsible for the payment of fines. It is, therefore, very important that the person in whose name a vehicle is registered exercises great care in supervising its use.
