Title 478 WAC – University of Washington
Chapter 478–116 WAC: Parking and Traffic Rules of the University of Washington,
WAC 478–116–371: Nonmotorized vehicles--Skateboard violations.
||Skateboard use in violation of WAC 478-116-242 shall result in the following:
||For the first offense, UWPD will record the name of the
individual and provide a written warning against further skateboard
use in violation of WAC 478-116-242. Individuals who cannot
produce satisfactory identification will be given a receipt for
their skateboard, which will be impounded at the UWPD station until
they are able to return with the receipt and identification. There
will be no impoundment fee.
||For a second offense, within twenty-four months of any
previous offense or warning, the skateboard will be impounded for
not less than forty-eight hours and the offender shall be subject
to a fine of ten dollars plus applicable impoundment fee.
||For a third or subsequent offense, within twenty-four
months of any previous two offenses, warnings, or combination
thereof, the skateboard will be impounded for not less than thirty
calendar days and the offender shall be subject to a fine of thirty
dollars plus the applicable impoundment fee.
||Impounded skateboards will be held by UWPD and released
only during regular business hours to individuals with satisfactory
identification. Payment of a ten-dollar storage fee will also be
required for release, except as provided in (a) of this subsection.
||Skateboards impounded under this section which are
unclaimed sixty consecutive days after the applicable minimum
impoundment time period has elapsed will be presumed abandoned and
be subject to sale at a public auction conducted by the university
surplus property department.
||The university and its officers, agents,
and employees shall not be liable for loss or damage of any kind resulting from
impounding, storage, or sale of any item under this section.
||Impoundment or sale of any skateboard under this section
shall neither substitute for, nor release any person from liability
for damage to persons or property caused by use of a skateboard at
the university, nor does it remove the obligation for any fines
associated with the violation or other outstanding citations. Any
proceeds resulting from the sale of a skateboard though the
university surplus department will be credited toward the
outstanding fee associated with the impoundment of that skateboard.
||Any person seeking to redeem a
skateboard impounded under
this chapter has the right to contest the validity of the
impoundment, the amount of applicable fees, and shall have the
skateboard released upon requesting a review provided in WAC 478-116-415,
and paying any outstanding fines or impoundment fees.
