Yeah, you DO NOT want to add that to the price of your ticket. Here in Philly, its an aditional $400 on top of the ticket, labeled as "Destruction Of Govt Property", and the price of the "boot" itself, if damaged. In NYC, people just drive away with it on their vehicle(j.k., Simpson's moment) But I have seen a gun pulled on a "booter" in Queens(Flatbush Ave nice area).I didnt stick around to see the outcome! I ve heard the trick is, for residents with no parking, to steal a boot and just kind of "put" it on your car when you wanna park illegally overnight.I dont know if this works though, sounds like an "urban legend" to me.
