Boot Eligibility Information

Vehicles become boot-eligible if a registered owner:

  • Accrues three (3) or more unpaid parking, red light, and/or automated speed enforcement tickets in final determination status.
  • Accrues two (2) unpaid parking, red light, and/or automated speed enforcement tickets in final determination status older than one year.

Once a vehicle reaches the boot eligibility status, payment for all tickets is necessary or the vehicle(s) will remain boot eligible. Entering into a qualifying payment plan will also remove a vehicle from the boot eligible list.

If you have tickets listed in the seizure section of a notice, you must pay all fines and penalties within (21) days of the first seizure notice listing such fines and penalties or any vehicle registered in your name may be booted.  Payment for all required tickets is necessary or your vehicle(s) will remain boot eligible.
