Use of Vehicle Immobilizers, aka Boots, by the Department of Public Safety
On Mar. 1, 2011, campus police officers will begin enforcing parking rules and regulations by implementing the policy below (which is included in the Parking Rules and Regulations on the Public Safety website). Notice is being provided at this time to the campus community, to give those who have unpaid parking tickets an opportunity to pay the tickets. If unsure if you have any unpaid tickets, the Department of Public Safety staff will be glad to research and advise. Just call (678) 466-4050 or stop by the office in the Student Center.
Vehicles are subject to immobilization when they are illegally parked, or it is determined that either the registered driver or the vehicle has accumulated three unpaid parking citations. An administrative fee of $50 will be assessed in addition to the payment of existing fines, prior to the removal of the immobilization “boot.” Removal of the “boot” may be arranged by contacting the Department of Public Safety at (678) 466-4050. Removal of the “boot” without the authority of the Department of Public Safety may result in criminal prosecution. Vehicles immobilized may be removed from the campus at the owner’s expense 24 hours after immobilization.
