ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Parking citations at the University of New Mexico have gradually increased over the past two years, producing relatively substantial amounts of revenue for the Parking and Transportation Services Department (PATS), the Daily Lobo reported.

According to PATS, there have been 40,988 citations given out in fiscal year 2014 and 40,083 distributed in fiscal year 2013. While citations make up 10% of the PATS annual revenue, the majority of the revenue comes from permit sales, which, combined, goes back into the PATS department, the report said.

“We are a fully self-funded department. We don’t get any money from the University and we don’t get any money from the state,” a spokesman for PATS said, adding that the majority of revenue from the total PATS budget goes to the shuttle system, paying for repairs, maintenance, gas and driver wages, according to the Lobo.
