Syracuse Police Will Be Ticketing When Fans Return To Carrier Dome

Syracuse, N.Y. - For the first time in nearly two years, the Syracuse University Football will kick off at the Carrier Dome with fans in attendance.

Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh and Syracuse Police Chief Kenton Buckner are warning SU Fans that there will be a specific effort to ticket vehicles parked illegally.

"Illegal parking during games creates real public safety risks to residents,” says Mayor Walsh in a statement. "We also need people to remember that the Dome is surrounded by neighborhoods where people live."

Officers working Dome traffic management, as well as dedicated parking checkers, will work around campus and in University neighborhoods after kickoff to enforce parking regulations:

  • On city streets, vehicles that violate alternate side of the street parking requirements may be ticketed.
  • In Thornden Park, Syracuse University will place traffic barrels where parking is not allowed. Vehicles parked illegally in the park may also be ticketed.
  • Vehicles blocking driveways; using handicap parking without authorization; parking within 10 feet of a fire hydrant; or preventing passage of public safety equipment may be towed.
  • Fines for illegal parking are:
  • Overtime at a meter: $40
  • No parking zone: $40
  • Blocking a fire hydrant: $75
  • Unauthorized handicap parking: $130
