Parking and Traffic

  • Parking Enforcement

    Students are allowed to park in A Lot, the largest parking lot accessed via Central Ave or Pershing Rd. They may not park in Lot B, west of the U-Drive, which is reserved for visitors on official college business.

    Faculty and Staff who properly display permit window decals may park in E and D lots. The decal is to be placed on the driver’s side rear door window if a sedan or ¼ window or driver’s window if a coupe. Permits are available only to approved faculty and staff; this does not include student workers.

    Permits are free and are acquired from the Department of Campus Safety.

    No vehicle is permitted to be parked overnight on campus grounds without prior authorization from the Morton College Police Department Office.

    Illegally parked or abandoned vehicles may be towed away at the owner’s expense in accordance with the ordinance of the Town of Cicero.

    Handicap Parking violators will be issued $250 citations without exception. Handicapped parking spaces are available in lots B, C, & E.

    Traffic Enforcement

    The speed limit on all Morton College roadways and lots is 10 mph. The fact that the speed of a vehicle does not exceed the applicable maximum speed limit does not relieve the driver from the duty to decrease speed by reason of weather or road conditions or other safety considerations.

    All traffic moving violations (i.e., exceeding posted speed limit, driving in hazardous manner, failure to obey traffic signs) will be subject to fine with no warning ticket.

    The Morton College Police Department patrols the College campus and surrounding roadways with the same authority as the Cicero Police and all other state agencies.

    Parking Fines

    Citations are issued to those parking in the Faculty/Staff lots without window decals. The fines are $25 or $35 if not paid within 21 days of issuance.

    All payment is made at the Cashier’s Office in A Building, located between the Theater and Office of Admission and Registration. Payment is not accepted at the Morton College Police Department Office.

    After 60 days, a hold will be placed on the violator’s account if enrolled at Morton College, preventing enrollment, financial aid disbursement, transcript release, or degree conferment.

    Citations are also issued to those blocking the bus stop, aisles, fire lanes, parking near the Child Development Center, or those otherwise inappropriately parked or stopped on campus property. If parking is not available in A lot, use the street.
