Miami Booting: AR Booting
Booting has become the most popular and effective way of enforcing parking requirements and restrictions all over the world. In the US they became known as a "Denver boot" when the city of Denver, Colorado was the first in the country to use them in 1953, mostly to force the payment of outstanding parking tickets. In the Greater Miami-Dade County, vehicle immobilization can be performed by the city or by private companies licensed to enforce parking requirements on private property. AR Booting is one such company.
A standard boot device is made in two parts: a clamp that is set around the inside and outside of the wheel rim and tightened with a bolt, and an arm that is then place over the clamp, covering the bolt and extending to cover the hubcap. This prevents the car owner from gaining access to the lug nuts and removing the wheel. The arm is locked onto the clamp with a heavy-duty padlock which is protected by a thick steel box. At AR Booting, our boots are wrapped in rubber plastic so as to cause little to no damage to the vehicle during the process.
A notice is then attached to the driver's side window of the vehicle and also under the windshield wiper warning them of severe damage if the vehicle is moved, and generally also stating the amount owed. These two notices prevent the owner from claiming they did not see the boot and attempting to take legal action for damages or losses.
With its special tamper-resistant padlock surrounded by a box of quarter inch carbon steel plates, this lock will stand up to just about anything short of a high yield explosive device.
A boot is only as good as the technician who applies it, and even the slightest error in doing this can result in the boot being removed illegally by a car owner. At AR Booting, all of our trained workers are experts on how to properly secure a boot.
