How many times must one’s car get the boot before one learns how to park?

Consider me vaguely impressed: 77 people have managed to get their cars booted multiple times in 2016.

Your car can be booted in Denver if you have three or more unpaid tickets or outstanding citations.

Out of those 77 multi-booted vehicles, there are two heroes who have been booted not twice but thrice. Unfortunately, the city of Denver says it can’t release their personal information to me.

So, if you’re a multi-booter, kindly email me.

In case you didn’t know: The clamp is popularly called a “Denver boot,” because it was invented here in the 1940s by a former Denver Symphony violinist. Thanks, classical music!
