If you owe more than $350 for parking tickets or red light or bus lane camera violations in judgment, your vehicle can be booted.
The boot is a yellow metal clamping device that is attached to one of the four wheels to prevent a vehicle from moving. Booting is actually faster, easier, and more convenient than towing for registered owners because they do not have to go to another location to get their vehicle released.
When a vehicle is booted, a notice will be placed under the windshield wiper on the driver's side. For the vehicle to be released, booting charges have to be paid in addition to the balance of parking tickets or camera violation judgments, interest, and fees.
