The Boot delivers an alternative to a tow
The Boot, after a successful run in Brooklyn and Queens, has hit Broadway. That is to say, a bright-colored metal object immobilizing your chariot as less horrifying than an empty parking space and a cab ride to the pound.
Meanwhile, valium compared to LSD. Kenny G versus Guns ‘N Roses. The lesser of two evils.
To clarify, the boot is here to stay, for at least as long as it takes the Evil Empire to capture all the scofflaws.
The yellow metal object in review
On the other hand, The booting process explained by the Evil Empire. (Driver’s beware. Accumulate $350 in unpaid parking tickets in judgment, and a cartoon character will not be the one to slap on a yellow metal object).
Please share your experience with the yellow metal object. Most importantly, was it better than a trip to the pound? Or does the process come with a different set of evils? Love to hear from you because it will help all of us understand what to expect.
In other words, this means you pay for the yellow metal immobilizer ($185) and pay again for the tow ($185). This dastardly behavior is draconian and not based on any parking law or rule I can find.
Consequently, I’ve written all the usual suspects and have not received a reply citing the law or rule that empowers the police to execute this double dipping strategy.
