Tucson parking enforcement bringing back ‘Barnacles’ next week
TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Park Tucson plans to resume its vehicle immobilization program on Monday, Aug. 9, and officials are urging residents to resolve unpaid parking fines before then.
According to a news release, parking enforcement agents plan to place a “Barnacle” device on any vehicle owned by someone with three or more unpaid parking citations.
The “Barnacle” is a GPS-monitored device that attaches to a car’s windshield and blocks the driver’s view, making the car impossible to move.
Once a “Barnacle” is placed on a car, its owner has the opportunity to come to a hearing scheduled within 48 hours, and the device will be removed once all fines and fees are paid.
To pay a parking fine, or arrange a payment plan, vehicle owners can contact Tucson City Court at (520) 791-4216 or visit 103 E. Alameda Street on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
