City of Topeka Implements Parking Boot Policy

The city of Topeka is now applying a device known as a boot to vehicles owned by habitual parking violators. That's being defined as anyone with three or more outstanding parking tickets for a months...or even years. Mike McGee is the general service director for the city. He says the number of habitual violators has dropped dramatically since the city started discussions of using boots to enforce its parking policies:

The locking devices immobilize the vehicle until payment is made. To get the boot removed, violators must pay the total fine plus a $35 processing fee. They'll have only 48 hours to do so before the vehicle is towed and impounded. The city says it has mailed notices to those considered habitual violators, warning them about the new boot policy, which went into effect yesterday (TUE).
