Atlanta car booting practices may finally get the boot

Want to give car booting companies the boot? There’s a public meeting for that.

An Atlanta City Council committee will soon hold a public meeting to discuss changes that should make drivers happier.

If approved, the legislation would amend the city’s code to lower the fees charged by booting companies to remove devices; reduce the response time to remove boots; and require employees to wear company uniforms and use self-release boots. It would also create uniform signage to be posted on private property where the devices are used, a press release said. 

The meeting will be held June 1 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at Atlanta City Hall, 55 Trinity Avenue SW. This is the second work session on the topic.
