Woman mistakenly gets car boot 4 times

From CBS 2:

A case of mistaken car identity has led to intense frustration for a Queens woman whose car keeps getting the boot.

As CBS2’s Weijia Jiang reported, when Brigitta Wareham walks to her car, “I have knots in my stomach every time.”

She said she is sick over the thought of having her car booted again.

“I’m mad. I’m worse than frustrated,” she said.

New York City boots cars when owners owe $350 or more in unpaid parking tickets. But Wareham owes nothing.

Yet in less than two years, the Sheriff’s Office has booted her car four times by mistake, Jiang reported.

“I want that clear – by mistake. I didn’t have any tickets, and don’t have any tickets, and they did it by mistake,” Wareham said.

The city’s Department of Finance oversees parking violations. A spokesperson said Wareham is the victim of “human error.”

Sue the city, get something in return, they owe you the aggravation.

You would think this should be an open and shut case when channel 2 went to the true scofflaw's apartment. That trashy woman incriminated herself with her cynical response and she said it so fluently like someone who knows she'll get away with anything.

There's really no justice for honest people in this town anymore. It's become so massively overcrowded that the real skels easily slip through the cracks.

She was smart going to the media with this.
