Students with two or more outstanding summonses will have a BLOCK placed on their records.

What do I do if my vehicle is immobilized?

Repeat violators who have two or more outstanding summonses will have their vehicle booted. A summons is considered outstanding when the fine has not been paid and the adjudication process has taken place pursuant to the College’s policies and procedures. The boot is removed when the outstanding indebtedness is satisfied.

Vehicles that enter York College parking lots without proper authorization are also subject to immobilization. The immobilization device is removed upon payment for the violation.
