Vehicles and Parking
to provide a safe and efficient traffic system that insures maximum vehicle and
pedestrian protection, all motor vehicles operated on the campus by Hendrix
College faculty, staff, and students must be registered with the Department of
Registration. All vehicle registration forms and decals are available
from the Department of Public Safety on Washington Ave. A registration form must be turned in before
a student decal can be issued. The $80.00 decal fee will be charged to every
student’s account. Students who do not intend to operate on campus will receive
a refund of the fee upon completion of a vehicle waiver form. If more than one
vehicle is to be used on campus, each of the vehicles must be registered. After
the purchase of one decal, additional decals may be obtained at no charge.

sure that the area is clean and dry. It is not permissible for a decal to be
taped or displayed from the vehicle interior.
vehicle owner is responsible for all violations committed by a vehicle
displaying the decal issued to the owner. If one loans his or her vehicle, its
proper operation is the owner’s responsibility. Persons operating a vehicle on
the Hendrix campus are held responsible for acquainting themselves with and
obeying the traffic regulations of the College. Vehicles bearing the
registration decal on the left rear bumper or window (rear fender of
motorcycles) are entitled to use the roadways and parking areas on campus as
specified in the Traffic and Parking Regulations brochure.
registration decals are available from the Department of Public Safety at no
charge. These decals are to be used by visitors remaining on campus for more
than one day and by students or staff using unregistered vehicles on campus for
short periods of time.

vehicle operation violations will be deemed a refusal to comply with the
vehicle operations regulations, and a warning letter will be sent to the

refusal, the Chief of Public Safety will notify the owner/operator in writing
