The Boot

If there are 3 or more unpaid tickets (or other outstanding citations) on a vehicle, a seizure warning notice will be issued, and a boot may be placed on your car. The boot won't be removed until all outstanding fines (including the additional $100 boot fee) are paid. If a vehicle is booted for 72 hours (excluding weekends and holidays) without payment, it will be considered abandoned and towed to impound. If a vehicle is towed to impound, an additional $100 tow fee will be charged.

Boot Removal

Pay-by-Phone, Pay-by-Web and Kiosk Payment services are available for booted vehicles 24 hours a day (see details). However, if fines, penalties and boot fees are paid after 5:00 pm using the Pay-by-Phone system or the Pay-by-Web service at, the vehicle will be released during normal operating hours.

Walk-in payments for boots may be made with cash, money order, Visa or MasterCard; no checks accepted for boots.  Payments should be presented at the Parking Cashier's Office on the first floor of the Wellington Webb Building in downtown Denver. The Parking Cashier's Office is open Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and 5 pm, excluding holidays.

If your vehicle has been towed, the only pay option is in person at the parking cashier counter. Before the vehicle is released from impound, the owner/operator will also be responsible for paying any and all fees incurred at the impound lot.

Boot Removal Operating Hours:  
Monday – Friday: 7:00 am - 6:00 pm

Boots will NOT be released on City holidays.

Please note: Boot removal doesn't grant your vehicle any special parking privileges. Once the boot is removed, you must ensure that your car is parked legally to avoid further citation.
