Downtown Lynchburg parking authority making changes

LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) Good news for those who regularly park in downtown Lynchburg. Well, sort of.

If you get three or more parking tickets, your car will no longer be towed. Instead, a "boot" will be placed on your tire until the tickets are paid off.

According to Lynchburg Parking Manager, Dave Malewitz, if a boot is put on a car, the owner will have 48 hours to contact parking management to pay off the the cost of the boot as well as their parking ticket debt.

They plan to implement the change in February.
