Action Line: Question and Answer

Friday , August 06, 2010 - 11:15 AM

Question: There are 16 cars parked by the "Do Not Park Anytime" sign near Building 1289 on the west side. This is a problem because I had to drive past the double yellow line just to get by. I almost got hit and someone was yelling at me because I was on the wrong side of the road. There are two parking lots that are available to park in. When I called security forces nothing seemed to happen. What is the policy concerning parking lot infractions?

Answer: Thank you for your question. AFI 31-204, Hill Supplement 1, requires each organization assigned responsibility for parking lots or spaces to appoint at least one parking warden who will receive training from security forces. Once, trained, parking wardens will ensure parking restrictions for their lots are strictly enforced and issue tickets for violations. Three parking violations within a 12-month period can constitute the loss of base driving privileges for a six-month period. This outcome has already been experienced by multiple three-time offenders. Your Action Line request did highlight the fact that currently Building 1289 does not have an assigned parking warden. Security forces has contacted the building custodian who in turn has appointed a parking warden for the facility.

The newly appointed parking warden is in the process of completing the required training and should soon be helping deal with the illegal parking problem there. Please contact Master Sgt. Christopher M. Clark, at DSN 586-3564 if you have any questions. You matter!
