PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The Portland Bureau of Transportation on Wednesday will start booting cars that have unpaid fines totaling $500 and/or six delinquent citations.

Once cars are booted, owners have 36 hours to pay the overdue citations and fees before the car will be towed and the cost of towing will go to the car owner as well.

Portland City Council voted to change city code last month to allow PBOT to boot cars.
