These boots were made for immobility – and city will talk
Written by Miami Today on April 13, 2018
What do boots, towing and valet parking have in common? Miami city commissioners may find out at a workshop to dig deeper into those matters.
At its April 12 meeting, commissioners were scheduled to take a final vote on proposed legislation governing the booting of motor vehicles but the ordinance was deferred for at least a month.
In the meantime, commissioners agreed to hold a workshop to discuss predatory booting, tow truck regulations, and valet parking services. No date is set.
The ordinance to clarify existing requirements and provide additional regulations relating to the immobilization/booting of motor vehicles on private property arose after numerous complaints about booting companies preying on motorists, particularly in Coconut Grove, and charging excessive fees to release vehicles.
