Towing and Immobilizing of Vehicles

PART VII

The University of New Brunswick reserves the right to have any vehicle towed or immobilized/booted at the owner's expense and risk, which, in the opinion of the Security and Traffic Department, creates a traffic hazard or seriously impedes or could impede deliveries, services, or emergency vehicles.

In addition to any other penalty, a vehicle may be towed or immobilized/booted without notice if it is parked in violation of these regulations, or if it has been involved in repeated offences, or if outstanding fines are owed relative to it.

Vehicles on UNB property which are immobilized/booted will receive an additional fine to their already existing offence(s) as identified in our Motor Vehicle Traffic & Parking Regulations, under Schedule “B”. Before the immobilizer/boot can be removed from the vehicle, the owner/operator must provide the UNB Security and Traffic Department with proof of identification by way of driver's license or a valid identification card, and must pay all outstanding parking fines accumulated on the booted vehicle. Unauthorized removal of, or damage to, an immobilization device is a criminal offence.

Before a towed vehicle can be released by the tow company, the owner/operator must provide the Security and Traffic Department with proof of identification by way of driver's license or student identification card, and must pay all outstanding parking fines accumulated on the towed vehicle. Upon meeting these obligations, a release form signed by an official from the Security and Traffic Department will be given to the owner/operator, that when presented to the tow company, will allow the release of the vehicle by the tow company to the owner/operator, upon payment to the tow company of any tow charges incurred.

The University is not responsible for damages in the tow-away and impoundment of vehicles nor for any damages related to immobilizing a vehicle.
