Vehicle Registration Requirements
All members of the faculty and professional staff who plan to operate a motor vehicle (including car, truck, motorcycle, moped, or scooter) on campus are required to register their vehicle through the Department of Public Safety. There is no charge for registration, and more than one vehicle per person may be registered.
In order to receive an automobile registration decal, a member of the faculty or staff may visit the Public Safety office and bring his/her College ID. A Franklin & Marshall decal will be issued and must be attached to the rear windshield in the lower corner on the driver's side of a vehicle. Only one parking decal may be displayed on a vehicle at a time. Vehicle registration is not transferable.
Whenever the license plate on a vehicle is changed, Public Safety must be informed.
It is advisable to register all bicycles brought to campus as the decal issued can be an aid in recovering a lost or stolen bike. Bicycles are to be ridden on driveways only, not on walks or lawns. Rules and regulations that govern motor vehicle traffic movement also apply to bicycles.
Parking regulations are established to provide as much parking as possible in paved areas and to allow safe passage of emergency vehicles, and access for maintenance and service vehicles. Formal action will be taken against owners of vehicles found to be in violation of the regulations.
