26-1. General Regulations

The operation of motor vehicles on Citadel property is a privilege granted by The Citadel Administration. This privilege is extended to all faculty, staff, and students, and those visitors having business at the college. Those individuals who qualify for and who desire to exercise this privilege are expected to adhere to the laws of South Carolina governing the operation of motor vehicles and the regulations for motor vehicles for The Citadel. Failure to comply with either the laws of the State or the Regulations of the College will result in a warning, or a penalty which may result in the loss of motor vehicle privileges.

In the event a Citadel Public Safety Officer elects to award a penalty for a traffic or parking violation, an official City of Charleston traffic summons or a South Carolina Uniform Traffic Summons will be issued to the violator. The City of Charleston Municipal Court shall have jurisdiction to hear, try and determine violations of the law.

These regulations apply to the drivers of all vehicles, whether public or private, and are in force twenty-four (24) hours a day unless otherwise provided in these regulations. It is unlawful for any driver to violate any of the provisions of these regulations except as otherwise permitted by the laws of the State of South Carolina.

The driver of any vehicle shall obey the lawful instructions of any College Public Safety (Police) Officer and of any official traffic sign properly placed in accordance with the provisions of these regulations except when otherwise directed by the Director of Campus Security (Provost Marshal).

The Citadel shall assume no responsibility for the care and or protection of any vehicle or bicycle or its contents at any time while it is operated or parked on College property.
