About UiB's parking permit
All those who park in university parking spaces must have a valid digital parking permit. The car's registration number is entered into the parking system so that cars without digital permits can be identified by parking enforcement. The registration number specified when applying for a parking permit is “white listed”. If an unregistered car uses one of UiB’s parking spaces then a parking charge notice can be issued. Therefore, when you purchase a new car or are using a hire car, you must remember to register the change in registration number.
Anyone who registers two car registration numbers must be aware that only one car can parked at a time.
About the parking regulations
A new parking regulation for civil-law parking has been adopted by the Ministry of Transport and Communications and applies from January 1, 2017. The regulation sets requirements for uniform signage, tariffs and sanctions, etc.
Parking charge notices are used as a means of sanction for violations of the parking terms and conditions that apply in the area in accordance with the parking regulations. The parking terms and conditions are clearly displayed on signage at the location. Car drivers are obliged to check what terms and conditions apply for a parking area and to familiarise themselves with these when parking.
Parking contrary to the terms and conditions of a parking area could lead to a parking charge notice, cf. Section 36 of the Parking Regulations. The rates for parking charge notices are set out in Section 36 of the Parking Regulations, and cannot be changed by the owner of the area or by the parking company.
