What to Do if You’re Booted—And How to Avoid It in the Future
Most boots are meant for walking, but if you’ve been the recipient of one of our yellow boots, that means you have at least three or more unpaid parking or red light camera tickets.
In the long run the best way to avoid getting the boot is to not ignore your tickets.
Here’s the scoop: After you receive a parking ticket, you have the option to either pay or dispute it. But if you wait too long to pay or dispute your tickets, you could receive up to $65 in late fees to boot (no pun intended).
For the complete run-down on what happens to a ticket that’s just flat-out ignored, go here.
Now let’s get back to the boot. Let’s say you do have three or more unpaid parking or red light camera tickets and you come back to your car only to see a big ol’ yellow boot latched to it. Here’s what you need to do:
Pay the Outstanding Tickets and Boot Fee
Before a boot can taken off your vehicle, all outstanding tickets and a $150 boot fee must be paid. In this case, calling 1-888-591-3636 and pressing 2 after hearing the language options is the quickest way to make the payment. However, you also have the option to pay all outstanding tickets and the boot fee online.
Once payment is received, our booting crew will be notified to remove the boot from your car.
