CSU Parking Services gives students an opportunity to decrease their parking fines during Parking Services' Amnesty Week, which started Monday and will run through Dec. 16.
Mike Rose, director of Parking Services, said students with parking violations can bring in a can of food and receive $3 off the violation, or if the fees have doubled, the fine will be reduced to its original amount.
However, if the fine has already been transferred to their student bill, Rose said the fee stands as priced.
All cans or other prepared, sealed food items, such as macaroni and crackers, go to the Food Bank of Larimer County.
Parking Services hosted the same event in the 2005 spring semester. However, this year Parking Services hopes to take care of some of the parking fines before next semester and hopes to use the fee reductions as an incentive while helping the food bank.
The rule is one food item per ticket, and there is no limit to the number of tickets a person can bring in. Food should be brought into the Parking Services building, and Rose said it helps, but is not necessary, if the citation is brought in.
