If you believe that your vehicle was booted or towed in error, then you can request an urgent Boot and Tow Hearing.
Request a Hearing in-person at one of our four Public Service Centers and make an appointment. The Hearing shall be conducted within 48-hours of the request, excluding weekends and holidays.
The Boot and Tow Hearing will only determine whether or not your vehicle has a sufficient number of delinquent parking citation fines to make it eligible to be booted or towed. You cannot contest individual citations at the Boot and Tow Hearing.
Pay outstanding fines within 48-hours after vehicle has been booted to avoid it being towed. If you paid for the citations at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) before your vehicle was booted, bring your itemized DMV receipt to the Hearing.
To release a towed vehicle, pay all outstanding parking citations and storage fees/fines from the Official Police Garage.
Boot & Tow Hearings have three possible outcomes:
Boot Eligible / Reasonable Grounds
- There is a sufficient number of outstanding parking citation fines
- Owner must pay all outstanding parking citations, fines, and additional $150.00 boot fee to have the boot on their vehicle released or impound and storage fees.
Not Boot Eligible, Reasonable Grounds
- There is sufficient documentation to show that there is no liability for tickets, but a complete transfer of Ownership was not completed prior to Booting or Towing of the vehicle. The Respondent will not be held liable for citations but is responsible for the $150.00 boot fee to have boot on their vehicle released or Impound and storage fees.
Not Boot Eligible / No Reasonable Grounds
- There is not a sufficient number of outstanding parking citation fines and vehicle will be released.
