Wish I would have read the summary, but I read the whole thing. I like seeing people stand up fro injustice. And when they do it right, like that, and try not to break any rules, it works nicely. I hope APS loses the contract. Can't believe they booted cars on the first infraction. That's just wrong.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

I'll summarize....

Dude lives in a townhouse complex. Lived a year before they hired a company to control the parking. Basically sold the parking spaces. He parked in the same spot with his rearview mirror pass displayed. One day, forgot to hang it (but it was still in view), and his car got boots put on it. He was about to garage it anyways, so he got dollies and pushed it into his garage, and called the company and said they could come get their boots. They said $140 to take them off. He said, I don't care, leave 'em, then. But if you want to come get them, I give you permission to come get them.

So they called the cops, and the cops said he didn't break the law. HOA got involved, and parking company is trying to sue him, meanwhile taking out frustrations on others, booting cars that park on the line, or don't display passes. No warnings, just boots on the cars, and $140 to come get them off. So wrong.

It's still not completely settled, but I think the parking company will probably lose the contract. Dude is trying to get the media involved and start petitions. Contract said that people should get 2 warnings, then boot. They were doing boots on 1st offense.

Thanks for the summary. I started reading the thread but my brain started to melt. I think I would have busted out the plasma cutters and started cutting everyones boots off.

I got one of those super-glue-no parking-stickers plastered on my window for parking in an employee lot at a golf outting once...messed up thing was that I was an employee...I wanted to break someone's legs I was so pissed.
