Just drive with it on...Hell...if Homer from the "Simpson's" could do it...so can you ;)

But I do find it ironic...they ticketed you cause at the time you didn't have proof that you were allowed to park there...yet they put a boot on your car which is forcing you to leave the car in a spot that you shouldn't be in in the first place.

Was it just the 150 for both tickets and to remove the boot? or was it that much just to remove the boot?

I found that a cordless sawsall works faster, at least with my friends jeep that had no registration insurance or vin number, ( built for rock crawling ) that came off in about two minutes.

???
YOU decided to park in the handicap lot, YOU decided not to pay the fine for that. YOU may not have decided to forget to put up your parking permit, but it is 100% YOUR fault that the permit was not in the window.

YOU knew that if you didnt pay the fines and YOU got caught this would happen.

tell me when the you getting screwed part comes into play.

and i'm not trying to nag at you.
I have 3 speeding tickets, but i'm not blaming them on the cops or saying i got screwed.
I know i messed up and take full responsibility for every one.

only you are responsible for your own actions
