Vehicle Booting in Washington DC

District law states that a vehicle is boot-eligible if it has two or more unsatisfied parking and/or photo enforcement tickets that are 60 days old.  A boot is a device attached to the car’s wheel in order to immobilize it. The boot can only be safely removed by DPW. A booted vehicle is subject to towing immediately, if the outstanding tickets and boot fee remain unpaid. Boots are normally removed less than two hours after fines have been paid.

DPW will tow booted vehicles from the street to either 1725 15th Street, NE (open weekdays from 10 am to 7 pm) or the Blue Plains Impoundment and Storage Facility at 5001 Shepherd Parkway, SW (open weekdays between 8 am and 4:30 pm). Customers may call (202) 541-6083 to learn the impoundment lot where their vehicle was towed.

To release the booted or towed vehicle, you must pay the boot or tow fee and all outstanding parking tickets on the vehicle tag.

IN ORDER TO PAY OUTSTANDING PARKING FEES IN DC:

  • You can pay parking tickets and fees in person at the DMV Adjudication Service Center. Tickets and boot fees may also be paid online.
  • The DC DPW has One Stop Customer Service Centers at the Blue Plains Impoundment Lot #4 (located at 5001 Shepherd Parkway, SW) and 15th Street Impoundment Lot # 5 (located at 1725 15th Street, NE) to allow you to pay ticket and tow fees online without visiting DMV’s Adjudication Services. Call 311 or (202) 737-4404 to determine which impoundment lot your vehicle is located.
  • Payments may be made with cash, money order, or credit card. The DC Government accepts Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit cards. DC Government does not accept American Express credit cards.
  • VERY IMPORTANT: Checks cannot be accepted for release of booted vehicles or towed vehicles with multiple outstanding tickets.
  • According to the DC websites, until you pay the tow and ticket fees, you may remove only these items from your vehicle: cash, checkbook, driver license, perishable items, medicine, and tools necessary for livelihood.

Impoundment Lots and hours of operation can be found on the Department of Public Works website.
