The University reserves the right to immobilize (boot) or to remove and impound any vehicle found on campus for the following reasons:
- A person or vehicle with three or more open unpaid parking tickets.
- A vehicle displaying an unauthorized, altered or revoked permit.
- A vehicle without a license plate.
- A vehicle with an expired license plate/vehicle registration.
- A vehicle parked in a driveway, fire lane, reserved for service vehicle space, or reserved lot.
- A person in repeated violation of parking guidelines.
- A vehicle parked in such a way that it is blocking a loading dock or trash dumpster.
- A vehicle parked in an area designated as a construction zone or in an area which requires emergency repairs
- A vehicle deemed to be abandoned, as per section 2.05(I) of this document.
- A vehicle parked in such a way as to constitute a hazard to vehicular or pedestrian traffic or to the movement and operation of emergency equipment
The fee to remove a mechanical restraint/boot will be no less than $50 for the first offense, $100 for the second offense, and $150 for the third and all subsequent offenses. All outstanding tickets must be paid in full before a boot will be removed.
If a vehicle’s outstanding tickets and boot fees are not paid within 72 hours of the vehicle being immobilized, the vehicle will be subject to towing at the owners expense. The vehicle will not be released by the towing company until all fines are paid in full to the University, and a release form has been obtained.
Any person who shall tamper with, damage, deface, remove or attempt to remove any device used to immobilize a vehicle by the University Police or Security, or who shall move or attempt to move the booted vehicle before the release of the vehicle has been officially secured, shall be reported to Student Conduct, may be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and shall be required to make full restitution for damages caused by such actions
