Booting a Vehicle

A vehicle will be booted if it has accumulated five or more outstanding parking citations.  In addition to the fines, there is a $30 fee for the removal of the boot.  Exception:  Motorcycles and vehicles that cannot be booted will be towed at the owner's/operator's expense. 

All citations and the boot fee must be paid within eight hours from the time that the boot is placed on the vehicle.  If the citations are not paid, the vehicle will be towed at the owner's/operator's expense.  Parking fines, towing, and storage charges must be paid before an impounded vehicle can be released.

Parking Services will not accept a check for over $100 for a vehicle that has been booted or towed for unpaid citations.  We accept cash, check, money order, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover.
