I have seen these in use in New Haven, CT. Usually, they drive around the streets looking for the usual parking ticket scofflaws, and boot violators. I don’t have a problem with that.
On the other hand, I have also seen them slowly cruising privately owned parking garages, which to me seems like it should be illegal. Public streets and private property would seem to have different laws, methinks?.....I would assume someone is getting paid to let them onto private property, to pursue something completely unrelated to parking.
Where does it end?
