What is Improper Booting?
An improper booting or immobilization of motor vehicles by booting is the placing of a device on a tire of the motor vehicle that makes the vehicle inoperable.
Unlike towing, where the Florida Statutes have strict parameters that the property owner and towing operators have to follow, there are no such guidelines for booting. However, some cities and counties have enacted local ordinances. When there are no local ordinances, we have taken the position that generally property owners and tow operators should follow the same guidelines outlined in Florida Statutes 715.07.
