Boot & Run
The industrious car owner, finding his or her vehicle immobilized by a bright yellow, heavy, metal boot, found a way to remove the entire wheel in order to get back on the road.
The courteous driver did leave behind a souvenir for the city’s Department of Finance, the nice people who issue parking tickets and slap boots on cars with more than two unpaid parking tickets over a year old, or three unpaid parking tickets in final determination status.
Surprisingly, Department of Finance staffers say booted drivers succeed in removing their boot more often then one would think.
The downside for drivers who remove the boot from their car is that they now face a $750 fine for tampering with the boot.
Special tip to Steve T. for the tip.
