Car Booting Attorney in Long Island, NY
Defense for Car Booting Charges
Need an attorney for a car booting case in Long Island? You come out of your apartment and discover that your car has been booted. You can't move it without paying your outstanding parking tickets, a $ 180.00 booting fee, a $75.00 administrative charge for the Sheriff and a 5% penalty as well. If you cannot pay the fines within 48 hours, your vehicle will be towed adding another $185.00 for the tow fee, plus storage costs for your vehicle until you can redeem it. After all of these matters are resolved, you will be charged an additional sales tax on the tow fee and any storage charges. Sound fair and reasonable? Fair or not, that is the law.

Prime & O'Brien, LLP are well versed in traffic law and regulations and can cut through the maddening and confusing number of regulations to get you back behind the wheel of your vehicle.
Challenging Car Booting in Nassau and Suffolk Counties
Car booting follows a default judgment against you for the following:
- Unpaid parking tickets
- Red light camera tickets
- Bus lane violation tickets
If you did not respond to the tickets, or pay fines, approximately 100 days later, a default judgment on the ticket will be obtained which then allows the car booting process to be initiated. The best time to challenge tickets is before this occurs, but if it already has, and certain time frames are still intact, we can request a Hearing After Judgment to challenge the ticket and explain why it had not be resolved earlier.
