Default FYI, PCC(Porltand Community College) parking patrol can run WA, OR and CA plates

"PCC’s parking patrol staff has access to DMV records in Oregon, Washington and California. We can issue warnings, but in order to write a citation, we must match the vehicle registration to a student, staff or faculty member. A student may be driving a car that is registered to someone who is not affiliated with PCC. In that case, we cannot issue the citation. A permit parking program would help us manage the situation better."

So, if you do get a ticket, ignoring may not be a good idea. Since they can trace the ownership, it may ruin your credit when they send it to collection.

Correct me if I am wrong but isn't ignoring a ticket regardless of where you got it or what plates you have a bad idea? Why would PCC be any different?

It's never a good idea ... but there are enough people out there who think that looking for a loophole to avoid taking responsibility for their own actions is the best idea on earth. They're always happy to let someone else pay for it ...

Not necessarily. Private property tickets are not always valid. It often becomes their word against yours and it becomes a civil matter where they'd have to go to court and prove the validity and usually the property owner/designee do not have access to registration records.

Private property ticket isn't always invalid. For example, "you did a U-turn in my driveway and sign says you can't" from a neighbor doesn't carry the same weight as a U-turn violation issued by the police on a public right of way.

PCC is a public institute of higher education, so it may have access to DMV records that your neighbor don't. If you park as a visitor at Jesuit High School and you disagree with their ticket and think its non-sense, it maybe different from parking at a Beaverton School District school.
