This past week has been crazy booting and towing by the city. Yesterday there were 6 on our street booted in the AM and towed by the afternoon. We saw a ton of tow trucks today as well. We live in Bloomingdale. Is this happening in every neighborhood? Just seems bizarre all at once after months/years of really nothing.”
Another reader asks:
“Was shocked today when I found my car was booted for $100 in past due parking tickets. Apparently I under paid one ticket by $10, and had an outstanding street cleaning ticket of $45 from July that had doubled.
Is this new? Should this be allowed? A $75 ticket and inconvenience of getting your car booted for $100 in outstanding tickets seems outrageous to me. And yes, I understand this is DC… yada yada. Looked it up. Rule is now two or more tickets past 61 days due = boot and subsequent $75 fee.”
