Impounding: This action shall be at the discretion of the college or district parking enforcement regarding any infractions pursuant to these regulations. Impounding may be implemented by mechanical restraints to vehicles on district property or by towing to an approved impounding agency. Release from impound on district property will be made upon payment of an appropriate fee, as determined by the Seattle College District. When a vehicle immobilization device is used (so-called "boot"), the fee to have this removed will be one hundred dollars, in addition to any other fines or fees levied for the infraction.

Towing companies and/or impounding agencies will be selected on the basis of criteria developed by the colleges and the district.  Neither the college nor district nor its employees shall be liable for loss or damage of any kind resulting from impounding and storage.  Any vehicle impounded on or from Seattle College District VI property, shall be at the owner's risk and expense.

No vehicle other than college owned or leased vehicles shall be parked on District VI property for a period in excess of seventy-two hours, without prior approval from parking enforcement.  Vehicles violating this regulation are subject to impounding at the owner's risk and expense.
