BarkingUnicorn: Fines for tampering with a boot are much higher than fees to have one removed.
andyfromfl: The My Little Pony Killer: cig-mkr: OK, if I park on private property they can have me booted because I'm actually trespassing, but they can detain and "fine" me too? I would think it should be a police matter, they are actually holding my car for ransom. Isn't that some kind of extortion?/ too old to give a damnThey would not have had the opportunity to "extort" you had you obeyed their clearly labelled signs.This seems to be happening a lot on this site lately. The argument isn't whether or not the offender behaved appropriately- we all concede that parking where you shouldn't is bad. The issue with what you were replying to is whether or not the fine is appropriate. If I say 'this is wrong, but the punishment is too severe' and you say 'yeah but it's wrong,' do you see the issue? We don't know what you're trying to convey.
rosonowski: So the problem is that cars are taking up spots in lots for places they're not patronizing...... so the solution is to immobilize those vehicles, assuring they take up the spot for much longer?Brilliant!
RickN99: swift booting
kidsizedcoffin: mciann: ok no. Your private contractual relationship ends where impounding and detaining a third party begins.Unless I can pay snipers to gib you if you set foot on my lawn.Land mines are a much more efficient method.
RareChimer: Pro-Tip: If you don't want to receive traffic citations, parking tickets, go to jail, have your car booted, or any other official form of punishment, don't break the official rules.No, you're not being hip and rebellious when you park in a spot you're not supposed to. You're just rolling the dice to see if you get to pay someone else some money for no additional benefit to yourself. Buy the permit, park in the right spot, save yourself some time and money.
