                    CARPOOL PLAN FOR LONGWOOD UNIVERSITY
                              FACULTY AND STAFF
  1. A Carpool will consist of 2 to 4 persons who agree to travel to and from work together in one vehicle.

  2. Members of the carpool must be identified and one member of the group will be designated the carpool manager for that group. The
  carpool participation form will be completed by the carpool manager and submitted to the Parking Services Office.

  3. Each member of the carpool will give to the Parking Services Office the vehicle information for one car per person to be used with the
  carpool permit as the group members rotate driving. This information will be part of the carpool participation form. If a member was on
  the payroll deduction plan, they must notify Payroll that they are leaving that plan and joining carpool.

  4. The carpool will receive one parking permit at a discounted flat rate, the cost to be divided amongst the group members. This flat rate
  will be $150.00. This fee will be paid at the Cashiering Office in Lancaster Hall.

   5. Daily use punch cards will be available at the Parking Services/Cashiers window in Lancaster Hall. Carpool members needing to use
  their personal vehicle may purchase these for $3.00 per day.

  6. The carpool vehicle will continue to park in Faculty/Staff parking zones.

  7. The carpool manager is responsible for informing the Parking Services Office of any change in the carpool participants. Should a mem-
  ber drop out of the program, they will return to a salary based parking fee and will receive their own permit and the appropriate paperwork
  for payroll deduction will be required. Should a new member join, this information must be submitted so that the payroll deduction will
  cease for that person. It will be the decision of the group how to handle the new member’s portion of the permit cost.

  8. Carpool groups will renew in August annually when the new academic year begins

Walk Smart
Walk Smart, Know the Law and Safe Practices
Walk the Line
Pedestrians are not allowed to walk on roadways when sidewalks are available. If there is no sidewalk, pedestrians are required to stay to the extreme left edge of
the road and walk facing the oncoming traffic.

Sidewalks
Pedestrians have the right of way on sidewalks. Sidewalks are constructed to keep pedestrians safe. Bicyclists should ride more slowly and be more alert on side-
walks — particularly when approaching a pedestrian. When passing a pedestrian when on a sidewalk, the bicyclist preferably should be traveling no faster than
the pedestrian. The bicyclist should give an audible warning such as “bike on your left!,” and wait for the pedestrian to move over.

Motorists should look for pedestrians and bicyclists, and yield to them when turning across sidewalks. When crossing a sidewalk, motorists should scan enough
of the sidewalk to see higher-speed bicyclists.

Even though they have the right of way on sidewalks, pedestrians can avoid crashes by paying atten-
tion to motor vehicle and bicycle traffic.

Pedestrians should make eye contact with motorists and bicyclists to be sure to be seen when cross-
ing streets, sidewalks, crosswalks, paths, and driveways.

Crosswalks
Pedestrians are required by law to cross at crosswalks whenever possible.

Crosswalks may be marked or painted on the street. In addition, crosswalks occur wherever side-
walks meet the street and where streets intersect. This type of crosswalk is called an “unmarked crosswalk” in the Code of Virginia.

Crossing at crosswalks allows pedestrians to cross in locations where motorists expect them. However, crashes often occur at intersections, so motorists and
pedestrians must be alert.

Scan and Cross
Before crossing, stop, look LEFT-RIGHT-LEFT (and over the shoulder) for approaching and turning traffic.

Many people cross streets in midblock locations. In some locations this is both legal and safer than other locations. Pedestrians crossing midblock should use
high levels of watchfulness and care, since many motorists may not be looking for them. Especially in urban areas, motorists expect pedestrians to cross at cross-
walks, and pedestrians should expect motorists and bicyclists to watch out for them.

Slow down!
Don’t rush or speed. Motorist speeding is a major factor in crashes with pedestrians. Stepping in front of moving vehicles is another major cause. Take the time
to keep yourself and others safe.
Cycling Laws
Bicycles have the same rights and responsibilities as motor vehicles when
ridden on the road in Virginia.

      • Follow rules that apply to motor vehicles
      • Obey all traffic signs, signals, lights, and markings
      • Ride on the right, with traffic
      • Unless the travel lane is too narrow to share with a motor vehicle, stay as far to the right as safely possible or use the shoulder
      • Ride no more than two bicyclists side-by-side
      • Ride single-file when moving slower than motor vehicle traffic
      • Obey signs that restrict riding on Interstate highways and on limited access roads
      • Yield to pedestrians
      • Call to pedestrians when approaching from behind and to pass
      • Use hand signals for turns and stops
      • When turning, use motor vehicle turn lanes
      • Keep one hand on the handlebars when carrying articles
      • Don’t carry adults on bicycles not built for more than one
      • Carry children securely in special seats or trailers
      • Don’t wear earphones in both ears
      • Use white headlamps visible from 500 feet when bicycling between sunset and sunrise
      • Use rear reflectors at night; if using roads with speed limits of 35 mph or more, use a red taillight visible from 600 feet
      • Be sure brakes work properly
      • Stop when involved in a crash that involves injury or damage
      • Report name & other pertinent information to police or others involved in a crash
      • Report property accidents to police within 24 hours
      • Obey local ordinances for riding on sidewalks, wearing helmets, and having a bicycle license

DEPT. OF PUBLIC SAFETY - LONGWOOD POLICE PARKING POLICY
REGISTRATION
A. Faculty, staff, commuter students, and resident students (note Freshman Car Policy) are permitted to have vehicles on campus. The University however,
   cannot guarantee a parking space on campus, nor is it liable for damages or losses resulting from vandalism of or larceny from any vehicle parked on the
   campus.
B. On-campus parking allocations will be Faculty/Staff, denoted by blue on the parking map; Commuter, denoted by red on the parking map; and Residen-
   tial, denoted by orange on the parking map. Lancer Park residents will display Lancer Park permits which are only good for Lancer Park parking areas,
   and in commuter spaces nightly from 5:30pm to 2:30am. Longwood Landings residents will be considered the same as on-campus residential students
   and must abide by all rules governing campus parking. Longwood Village residents will be considered as commuter students but will have special permits
   that also allow parking at the Longwood Village community. All vehicles utilizing any campus parking facilities must be registered and display the appro-
   priate permit. All outstanding parking citations must be paid prior to vehicle registration. All student guests must also display a parking permit (guest
   pass) which is available at no charge from Parking Services and Police Dispatch.
C. Since parking regulations are enforced year round, vehicles should be registered prior to the start of the semester. Instructions will be available for on-line
   registration from the Longwood website. Vehicles may be registered in the following manner:
   a.     All upperclassman student vehicles will be registered using the On-Line Registration process.
   b. The On-Line process will accept credit and debit cards for decal purchases.

                                                                                                                                                                             h

D. Students are restricted from using Faculty/Staff parking areas. Only one registered vehicle per student may be present on the campus at any time. Any
   Faculty/Staff member loaning or giving their parking permit to a student will be subject to disciplinary action and will forfeit their permit with no re-
   fund.
E. Faculty and staff members will be issued hanging tags. These permits are transferable to other family owned vehicles. Only one registered vehicle per per-
   mit may be present on the campus at any time.
F. Motorcycles have the same status as automobiles. Owners must abide by the same guidelines concerning registration, parking, and operation on campus.
   Special decals are available for faculty/staff motorcycles. Scooters that are not registered with DMV are not considered motor vehicles. These will be
   treated like bicycles and should be registered with Campus Police as such. If you have a scooter that has a DMV registration, it will be considered a vehicle,
   will be parked in a parking space, and must have a permit.
G. Temporary Permits:
   a. Temporary permits will be issued at a prorated cost depending on the number of weeks needed.
   b. Temporary permits are not intended to enable individuals to delay registering their vehicles.
   c. If a vehicle is disabled, the driver must email Parking Services (parking@longwood.edu) for a 48-hour authorization. This 48-hour authorization
       allows sufficient time for the vehicle to be repaired, moved, or towed. You must notify the Parking Office to be granted this time.
