The Department of Public Works (DPW) boots or tows vehicles in the District of Columbia that have two or more 60-day-old, unpaid tickets. A boot is a device attached to the car's wheel in order to immobilize it. The boot can only be safely removed by DPW. A booted vehicle is subject to towing immediately, if the outstanding tickets and boot fee remain unpaid. Boots are normally removed less than two hours after fines have been paid.
