You may recall a flap last spring over a local attorney's attempt to get parking scofflaws out of paying their fines because they hadn't been notified of their violation by certified mail.
Well, as of Monday, Louisville resumed using devices called boots to immobilize illegally-parked vehicles whose owners already have at least three other outstanding parking tickets. Before doing so, they did notify the 21,000 people who fit into that irresponsible category. And yes, this time they did it via certified mail.
But has that stopped the whining? Of course not.
The same attorney who last year led the movement to make obeying the parking laws an option rather than a requirement now says he doesn't believe it's "prudent" for the city to resume using the boots. Even though - in response to his federal lawsuit -- a judge recently ruled the use of boots is completely constitutional.
When is this guy - and the thousands of other people who don't grasp the concept of parking laws - ever going to get it?
I'm sure these are the same people who are the first to get bent out of shape whenever they believe someone's violated their personal space. But for some reason, they seem to think all the space is theirs.
But they're wrong. And as long as they insist on acting otherwise, I'm all for throwing the book - and the boot - at them.
