You will be assessed the full fine, plus a small... large lateness fee

Don't think anyone's mentioned it in here, and that last parking post reminded me of a story KOMO ran earlier this month about the rise (or at least presence) of the boot in Seattle.  Apparently the Taco Bell on Capitol Hill now boots cars instead of towing them, with an attendant hanging around in the lot waiting for non-customers to park.  Clamping on the boot takes about 45 seconds, and then they just wait for the owners to come back and write a check on the spot to get their car free.  Just thought I'd pass on the link, 'cause it's probably only a matter of time before someone posts in this community whining about how their poor car got clamped and it totally wasn't their fault and blah blah blah.  So now you know.
