A parking scofflaw is any violator who accumulates at least four outstanding parking tickets (i.e., tickets that are unpaid at least 16 days after the ticket issuance date).
The Parking Division’s boot crews are authorized to immobilize (apply a booting device to) any vehicle that is on the current Parking Scofflaw File. Once a vehicle has been immobilized, it is subject to immediate tow. The City uses City-owned and contracted tow trucks to tow tow-eligible vehicles.
Vehicles towed by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police: The St. Louis Metropolitan Police are authorized to initiate the tow of any vehicles on the current Parking Scofflaw File; the Police do not utilize a booting process.
If you believe your vehicle has been towed for any reason other than outstanding parking tickets, please contact the City’s Towing Division.
