How many parking tickets do I have to get before I can be towed?
A vehicle can be towed if one or more tickets remain unpaid. Boulder Revised Code Section 2-6-7 authorizes the court clerk to order the impoundment of vehicles that have been placed on the scofflaw ("pick-up") list if the registered owner fails to pay or respond to a letter notifying the owner that the vehicle has unpaid parking tickets.
What should I do if my vehicle has been towed?
If your vehicle was impounded due to outstanding parking tickets, you should call the Boulder Police Department at 303-441-3333 to locate your vehicle. To obtain a release of your vehicle, you must pay the balance owed at the Boulder Municipal Court Violations Bureau on the first floor of the Justice Center, 1777 6th St. (6th and Canyon). The Boulder Municipal Court is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (except that the court is closed from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. the second Friday of every month). Phone: 303-441-4212. You can also make payment at the Boulder Police Department, located at 1805 33rd Street. The Police Department is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week. After hours you can call dispatch at 303-441-3333 for a city impound, or 303-441-4444 if your car was located in the county. Payments may be made in cash only.
Why was I towed if I don't have any unpaid parking tickets?
There are two possible reasons:
(1) Occasionally, a vehicle is towed because it is blocking a private driveway and the citizen has asked the police department to remove the vehicle.
(2) During certain time periods, construction or city street sweeping projects will result in the towing of a vehicle.
Signs posted prior to the initiation of construction or street sweeping projects authorize towing of vehicles parked in locations designated as temporary "No Parking" zones. If your vehicle is not located where you originally parked, you should first check nearby to see if the vehicle was simply moved to another location. If you are still unable to locate your vehicle, contact the Boulder Police Department.
