Vehicles may be subject to vehicle wheel immobilization or “booting” after 3 on-street parking citations remain unpaid on the account. Paying and resolving citations promptly is a good way to avoid having a booted vehicle.
If your vehicle has been booted, only cash or money order payments are accepted. Personal checks and credit cards are not accepted. And, there is a $25 Boot Removal Fee that will also apply to the balance due. All unpaid parking citations and the total account balance must be paid before a vehicle will be released.
Once payment has been made, the vehicle is usually released in approximately 30 minutes between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. If your vehicle has been booted and it is after 5:00 p.m., please contact the Police Department at (540) 853-2212.
