THE BRONX - If a driver owes more than $350 in parking, red light camera or bus lane violation tickets, they run the risk of booting, or having a device attached to the car's wheel to keep it from moving.
New York City is testing out a new car-booting payment program that lets drivers pay the booting fines at several check-cashing stores throughout the city.
Bronx drivers will have three locations to pay the fines, including one at the Pay-O-Matic on Bruckner Boulevard.
The city's Finance Department warns drivers with booted cars or who are at risk to avoid paying online because it takes longer to process.
Also, if drivers don't pay the fees they owe within two days of being booted, their vehicle may be towed, leading to more expensive fines.
