FARGO, ND (KFGO AM) -- Some NDSU students are questioning why parking ticket fines have jumped $5.00.
Instead of paying the city of Fargo, the campus is now handling all the tickets.
What used to be a $15 fine, has now been bumped up to $20.
Regular tuition and fees don't cover street repair or parking areas.
So those funds have to come from somewhere.
NDSU parking and transportation manager Rob Lynch says all the money made from the parking tickets, the parking permits and even the hourly parking lots goes right back towards parking improvements.
