Booterwatch: fighting fire with fire
The recent story, What's this all a'boot?, that ran in the Daily Universe got me thinking about the boot I got on my car this past winter. When my booter came to take the boot off, I got in his face and took pictures with the idea of creating booterwatch, a listing of the slimy booters that infest the Provo / Orem area. Well, it's done, so take a look!.
The whole point here is to ... put pressure on these people so that they don't want to work as booters anymore. If this catches on, the booting companies will become less profitable, or at least less successful and ruining people's days, day after day.
I realize that there is actually a need for parking enforcement, but the current system is being badly abused. These companies are the lowest of the low. They're not going to fix themselves, so they need to be regulated more tightly by the city government. Hopefully, this will serve to highlight the problem and put pressure on the whole system to help affect change.
What do you guys think?
