Starting in April, Corpus Christi Parking Control will begin sending out notices of intent to “Boot or Tow” vehicles with outstanding parking violations.  A 10-day grace period will be given to resolve any outstanding citations before booting a vehicle.

Beginning May 6, 2019, Parking Control will “Boot” vehicles that have not resolved their unpaid citations or parking violations.  Booted vehicles are also subject to being impounded.

The registered owner/lessee of the vehicle whose license plate has been identified as having delinquent parking violations will receive their initial notice by mail.  Notifications will be sent to any owner/lessee whose vehicle has three or more outstanding parking citations in a calendar year owed to the City of Corpus Christi, TX.  Per Section 53-192(i) (1) through (5) of the Corpus Christi Municipal Code, a vehicle with a license plate identified as having delinquent parking violations is eligible for immobilization (boot) or impoundment (tow) unless all fines and penalties are paid in full to the City of Corpus Christi within 10 days from the date of the letter or an Administrative Hearing is requested.

The registered owner of the vehicle, in addition to being responsible for all outstanding parking citations, will be responsible for all fees and costs incurred in immobilizing and/or impounding the vehicle, including storage fees.
