Once you accumulate $200 or more in fines (includes both parking and red light violations) or three unpaid tickets, your vehicle is subject to seizure/booting. The booting threshold ($200) applies to accumulated fees from all vehicles titled in your name, which includes vehicles either solely or jointly owned. Once you have been booted, you must pay your fines before the boot can be removed. You may call the toll-free telephone number listed on the back of the booting notice and arrange to pay your fine by credit card or make payment in-person Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. using cash or credit card at the Finance Department’s Customer Service Center on the 1st floor of the Louis L. Redding City/County Building, 800 N. French Street, Wilmington, DE 19801.

Returning Your Boot

Once you have paid your fine or fines, return your parking boot device to the Finance Department. Park in the designated area on the corner of 8th and French Street (as shown in these photos).
