Sec. 20-203. Failure to respond to citation; default fee; booting and impounding vehicle authorized, booting and impound fees; damages to boot.

     (d)     [Booting, impoundment.] In addition to actions taken under section 20-203(b) or (c) above, the citing authority may boot, impound or cause to be booted or impounded any motor vehicle owned by a person who has three (3) or more unpaid civil parking infractions or has failed to respond to the civil parking infractions as set forth in section 20-203(b) or (c), giving notice that there shall be a hearing before a limited special magistrate within forty-eight (48) hours of the booting or impoundment, excluding weekends and holidays.

The limited special magistrate shall conduct the hearing as follows:
     (1)     The limited special magistrate shall conduct a hearing where the sole issue shall be to determine whether the vehicle was owned by the person at the time of the civil parking infractions, determine whether the infractions have been paid or otherwise responded to, and determine whether the boot was damaged or taken from the vehicle.
     (2)     If the owner fails to appear as directed by the citing authority, the limited special magistrate shall enter a default judgment in the amount of the unpaid fines, booting fees, impound fees, other costs imposable under this section and order the vehicle impounded until all fines, fees and other costs imposable under this section are paid or the vehicle is disposed of pursuant to sections 20-13 and 20-14 of this Code.
     (3)     For purposes of this hearing, the transference of title of the vehicle from the owner of the vehicle when the civil parking infraction occurred to another person after the vehicle was booted or impounded is not a defense to nonpayment of the fines and the vehicle will not be released until the unpaid fines, booting and/or impound fees and any other costs imposable under this section are paid, except pursuant to subsections (d)(6) and (7) of this section.
     (4)     If a continuance is granted to the defendant for good cause, the booted or impounded vehicle may be released upon the posting of a cash bond in the amount of the booting and/or impound fees, other costs imposable under this section and potential fines. If a continuance is granted to the city for good cause, the impounded or booted vehicle shall be released forthwith without the necessity of a bond.
     (5)     If the case is continued, the limited special magistrate shall set the hearing within thirty (30) days.
     (6)     If judgment is entered in favor of the owner, the booted/impounded vehicle shall be released forthwith to the operator or owner of the vehicle, unless the boot was damaged or taken, without any booting and/or impound fees, and any bond posted shall be returned to the person posting the bond unless the boot was damaged or taken, then the vehicle shall not be released nor the bond released until the repair or replacement cost for the boot is paid.
     (7)     If judgment is entered in favor of the city, the limited special magistrate shall order the payment of unpaid fines and fees booting and/or impound fees and damages or replacement cost of the boot, if any. The limited special magistrate may order the vehicle impounded until all fines, fees and damages or replacement cost of the boot, if any, are paid or the vehicle disposed of pursuant to sections 20-13 and 20-14 of this Code. The limited special magistrate may allow the vehicle released if the owner shows good cause and agrees to make payments. However, the booting and/or impound fees and any damages or replacement cost of the boot, if any, shall be paid before the vehicle is released to the owner.
     (8)     The booting fee shall be in the amount of seventy-five dollars ($75.00) and the impound fee shall be in the amount of the towing or removal costs plus storage fees. These fees are hereby declared to be cost recovery measures, administrative in nature, separate from and in addition to any civil penalty imposed.
     (9)     Any person who damages a boot on a vehicle either by attempting to remove the boot or by trying to drive off with the boot or by taking the boot is responsible for the repair or replacement cost of the boot. The limited special magistrate shall order the repair or replacement cost of the boot be paid before the release of any vehicle.

     (a)     When a vehicle has three (3) or more unpaid civil parking infractions or the vehicle owner has failed to respond to the civil parking infractions as set forth in section 20-203(b) or (c), the city court shall place that vehicle on the booting/impound list.
     (b)     After a vehicle has been placed on the booting/impound list, any other vehicle owned by the owner of that vehicle is also subject to booting and/or impoundment. Prior to the booting or impoundment of any vehicle registered in a state or jurisdiction other than the State of Arizona, where such booting or impoundment is based solely on section 20-204(b) or (c), a boot/impound notice shall be affixed to the vehicle at least twenty-four (24) hours in advance of any booting or impoundment advising the owner and/or operator of the vehicle that the vehicle has been placed on the booting/impound list and is now subject to booting or impoundment without further notice.
     (c)     Twenty-four (24) hours after a boot/impound notice has been affixed to a vehicle pursuant to section 20-203(d), that vehicle, as well as any other vehicle owned by the same owner, shall be subject to booting or impoundment without further notice.
