An Illinois state senator wants to allow the city of Chicago to boot and sell cars belonging to people who owe the city money on a court judgment.
Car theft is too common a crime in Chicago, with more than 16,000 last year alone. One Chicago car owner took a drastic step to prevent thieves from taking his ride.
The Chicago Inspector General’s office says scheduling errors involving the crews that immobilize vehicles with the Denver boot have cost the city $160,000 per year.
If you live in Rolling Meadows, Police are warning you – the boot is coming.
Chicago is writing fewer parking tickets, but slapping more vehicles with the wheel-locking Denver boot.
