Will I receive a penalty if I pay my summons late?

Your vehicle may be booted or impounded if you have 3 or more unpaid parking tickets over 30 days old. If so, all Mount Vernon parking tickets under the registered owners' name (all license plate numbers) plus a boot/impound fee must be paid prior to a release being issued. There is no parking ticket reduction permitted on the booted/impounded vehicle.

If you do not appear in Court to answer the summons or make payment 30 days after the issuance of the summons, your fine will be doubled and may be further increased or subject you to imprisonment if default continues, and/or the owner may be denied registration renewal and the vehicle immobilized at the owner's expense.
