All citations associated with the vehicle that has been immobilized must be paid in full, including a $75 fee, before the
unit will be removed. You have the right to appeal only the validity of the vehicle’s placement on the immobilization eligibility list. All fees must be paid in full for the unit to be removed while you await the hearing. The hearing officer will only be deciding whether or not the vehicle in question was eligible for immobilization. If the hearing officer decides for your case, you will be refunded the $75 fee.
A vehicle may be immobilized by either a standard wheel boot, or a Barnacle windshield unit. The Barnacle will allow self-service payment via Credit/Debit card, and the driver will have 48 hours to return the device to the drop-off location in order to avoid an additional $75 charge for non-return compliance. If the Barnacle is still not returned after 72 hours, you may be charged with a crime.
If the vehicle was immobilized with a standard wheel boot, you will be required to visit the office to pay in cash, certified funds or credit card from the cardholder. No personal or business checks are accepted.
If your car has been towed as a result of immobilization unit and payment is subsequently made, parking services will provide the tow company the release notification to allow you to get the car from the impound yard. Proof of ownership, current registration or a temporary moving permit will be required by the tow yard in order to release the vehicle along with the letter from parking services.
