    I didn't think a store had the right to do this. Getting them towed, sure, but booting? What a bunch of idiots and I too hope they get slapped with something for this.

    If the parking is for customers only, how does booting the car and inevitably leaving it there longer help the situation?

    The paramedics should retaliate by throwing a molotov cocktail through the store window. Prank wars!

    "Booting" doesn't exist in my country; is it normal for a private citizen/private business to be equipped to perform such an act? From what I heard about the practice, I thought only police officers and municipal parking officials were allowed to do that.

    Honestly, I don't even know what type of criminal punishment you can hand out here. They'll get some type of citation, lawsuits for sure. I mean what do you do here?

    Well, most states have a law against hendering the movement of emergency vehicles while responding to a call...that would be a good start.

    And if the guy who the paramedics were responding to has some kind of medical issue that's a cause of them having to wait around for the second ambulance, I'm sure he can file some kind a lawsuit as well.

    Absolutely not. The laws are pretty clear, to pave way for all emergency vehicles, and tampering with an emergency vehicle is a felony in my neck of the wood. I know they started the tampering laws about 10 years ago when crooks would climb into bus and steal stuff while the paramedics are working on the person injured.

    Trying to comprehend what the person was thinking who put the boot on that ambulance. Its like trying to comprehend the sound of one hand clapping. My brain is going to explode.

    This.

    If some yahoo gave me a flat tire with one of these stupid boot things, they'd get an earful from me.

    The idea behind it was likely Boot the ambulance, make the paramedics pay for the fine in the hurry to get out of there, they come back later, pretend it had nothing to do with you.

    The owner of the store has probably done this before to random folks in a cash grab. They can't prove it wasn't a valid boot so the owner gets his money. I hope he gets caught and sued/arrested.

    Sounds like an honest mistake, they really need to start making ambulances stand out a bit more. It's so easy to confuse them with other vehicles.

    :doh:

    They should hire Joel Schumacher and give him some neon. He will light that ambulance up like its the fourth of july.

    In all seriousness, tho, I have seen some dumb **** in my time, but this takes the cake. Even trying to comprehend what that fool was thinking booting that ambulance makes me feel dumber. If this person had even the mental capacity of a 4 year old he knew exactly what kind of vehicle that was. Not enough facepalms in existence!
