9 Parking Scofflaws Booted Yesterday

The Parking Enforcement Section booted nine vehicles on July 5th, 2011, the opening day of the new parking scofflaw program. The City of Seattle plans a ”soft launch” of the program, booting a limited number of vehicles in the first week of enforcement. The first boot was applied at 2:13 p.m. and the last boot was applied at 3:49 p.m.

At the lowest end of the range of vehicles booted, $467 is owed on 4 outstanding tickets. At the highest end of the range of vehicles booted, $3,308.00 is owed on 34 outstanding tickets.

As of 4:00 p.m. yesterday, one booted motorist had paid the amount owed and self-released the boot. The details of that incident are below:

• That vehicle was booted at 3:34 p.m.

• The motorist called the boot vendor at 3:44 p.m.

• The amount owed, $475 (including the $145 boot fee) was paid at 3:50 p.m.

• The vehicle was released from the boot at 3:51 p.m.

The Parking Enforcement Section will be out again today looking for more parking scofflaws (vehicles with four or more overdue, unpaid parking tickets found in public right-of-way areas).
