The City of Moncton is cracking down on booting, with a new Vehicle Immobilization By-Law.
It was discussed at last night’s Moncton City Council meeting.
Mayor Dawn Arnold says, “We have imposed a maximum immobilization fee set at $45, which is similar to a parking ticket.”
The By-law includes a $100 fee charged to all vehicle immobilization businesses for a city issued license.
All parking lots where booting occurs will be required to display signs with clear specifications.
If a car is being booted, a written notice must be placed on the windshield to explain why.
Arnold stated that this issue has been a priority for a number of years.
A second and third reading of the by-law will be done at the next regular Moncton City Council meeting.
The full by-law can be found at Moncton.ca.
