My question is, do any other school campuses have comparable policies?
This is at the university of arkansas, fayetteville btw
Bicycles parked on campus must be registered with the Transit and Parking Department and must display a valid UA bicycle permit. The decal must be permanently affixed by the manufacturer’s adhesive to the front of the vertical seat tube, below the horizontal bar. Bicycle permits cost $15 and are valid for as long as the permit holder owns the bicycle. One third of the permit fee will be used to fund the bicycle permit program, one third to install and maintain bicycle racks on campus, and one third to help fund the Razorbikes program.
Unregistered bicycles will be tagged, and the owner will have two weeks to register the bicycle. Bicycles remaining unregistered two weeks after being tagged will be impounded or immobilized. Bicycles remaining immobilized for one week will be impounded.
Bicycles are subject to all state and local motor vehicle laws pertaining to street travel. Bicycles must be parked only at bicycle racks and must be secured with a commercially available lock to prevent theft. Unsecured bicycles will be immobilized or impounded.
Bicycles secured to handrails, trees, or any location other than designated bicycle racks are subject to being impounded or mobilized. Bicycle security devices may be removed by whatever means necessary to impound the bicycle. The university will not be held liable to the owner of this device for the cost of repair or replacement of such device. Bicycles may not be parked, stored, or left standing in the lobby, hallway, or room of any building except in designated bicycle rooms in residence halls. Bicycles parked improperly will be cited for Parking in an area not designated as a parking area, currently a $20 fine.
Impounded bicycles will be held for 60 calendar days before they are added to the Razorbikes fleet or turned over Surplus Property for sale. Transit and Parking will contact the owner of a registered impounded bicycle at the address, phone and e-mail on the bicycle registration record within two working days of impoundment.
Bicycles will be identified as abandoned if the bicycle is not registered and is missing a major component such as pedals, handlebars, or chain and/or has flat tires. Once identified as abandoned, the owner will have two weeks to register the bike and make it operable or the bike is subject to being impounded.
Claiming an impounded bicycle requires registering the bicycle, providing proof of ownership (a sales receipt will suffice) or providing make, model, color, and location at the time of impoundment; providing the owner's name and ID and sign a statement of receipt as well as payment of all citations and fees on the bicycle. There will be a $10 charge for the return of an impounded bicycle or the removal of an immobilization device.
A list of impounded bicycles shall be posted on the Transit and Parking webpage at: http://parking.uark.edu for a minimum of 60 days.
Transit and Parking will have u-locks available for sale at cost to owners of registered bicycles. One lock will be sold per registered bicycle.
