Parking Services plans a self-release option for Immobilization Device#
Starting August 1, 2022, Parking Services will work with Barnacle Enforcement Solutions to introduce a self-release immobilization device for the convenience of our customers. While the goal is for everyone to park legally and to never use an immobilization device, there are instances when a customer has outstanding parking citations, and a device may be used.
The Barnacle device has a self-release option that can be used after regular business hours, including weekends and holidays. The user simply pays directly through Barnacle Enforcement Solutions and receives a release code. The Barnacle units and relatively lightweight and are manageable by most users. If the self-release option is chosen, you must return the immobilization device to the drop-box, located in the parking lot just north of the Parking Services office at 215 N Mason St, within 24-hours of release. Failure to return within the allowable timeline will result in the cost of the unit being charged to the method of payment used.
Each unit it equipped with a GPS locator and movement/tampering alarm, which notifies the appropriate enforcement agency of any attempt to move the vehicle and/or remove the device. While this may seem like an extreme measure, it is in place to ensure that each unit serves its purpose while allowing of quick and easy retrieval of your vehicle.
Payment information and QR codes are displayed on each unit, letting you know when to contact Parking Services directly, and when to reach out to Barnacle Enforcement Solution.

If the citation remains unpaid after 20 days, from the date of notice, your vehicle may be immobilized by installing on or attaching to such vehicle a device designed to restrict the normal movement of the vehicle. The immobilization device(s) will remain on the vehicle until the full amount owed is paid in full, plus an $85 immobilization fee.
