Parking Boot on displayLa Crosse, Wis. (WXOW) – Frequent offenders of the city of La Crosse parking rules could see an even bigger headache than a ticket under the wipers.

Officers now have parking boots to install on cars that have five or more violations and haven’t been paid in 60 or more days.

While tickets can start at $15, there are over $300,000 in unpaid fines.

Sgt. Walsh says the department has sent out notices to many of these parking violators with no success in getting them paid. The department hopes the boot solves that.

“Come forward, voluntarily comply, work with the city, work with the police department and get these fines taken care of,” Walsh explains. “Our goal is not to go out and put a bunch of boots on cars. Our goal is to get these fines taken care of and see to it that we don’t have these problems moving forward.”

The boot also includes a windshield cover and will add a $150 administrative fee for taking it off.
