Vehicle Booting

When a vehicle is booted, a device is attached to a wheel of your vehicle to prevent you from moving it. Your vehicle can be booted for owing the city more than $350 in parking ticket or camera violations that are in judgment.

 

Removing the Boot from Your Vehicle

  1. If your vehicle was booted, please call 646-517-1000 to pay all outstanding judgement debt, plus the additional fees listed below.
    • Pay by phone with debit/credit card or a electronic check.
    • Or pay by cash, money order or cashiers check at a Business Center.
    • If your car is booted or is at risk of being booted DO NOT PAY ONLINE
    • If your car is at risk of being booted and you pay online, your vehicle may be booted or towed before your payment is processed. You will be responsible for all booting and towing fees.
  2. You will receive a release code immediately after full payment.
  3. When you enter the code, the boot will unlock and you can remove it.
  4. Return the boot to a return location within 24 hours to avoid a late fee of $25.00 per day.
