Booting Resumes for Unpaid Tickets
Citizens should be made aware that enforcement of Local Law No. 3 of 2011, regarding the booting of vehicles will resume immediately. Booting had been temporarily suspended while the City reviewed policies regarding booting.
Any motor vehicle which has three or more tickets outstanding in excess of 45 days may have a boot installed upon it. In addition to the outstanding tickets, the car owner shall pay a boot removal fee of $110 dollars plus tax.
If your vehicle is booted, you have 24 hours to pay all fines to the ticket clerk at the parking bureau. The tow company that installed the boot will return after 24 hours to tow the vehicle and you will be subject to additional towing and storage charges.
