    Those afraid of getting their cars booted in the District got some good news Friday.

    The Department of Public Works has laid off about half of the employees who usually boot vehicles.

    The cuts were designed to save the city some much-needed money.

    Most of the employees laid off were able to find jobs in other city agencies.

    “The parking officers have not been laid off,” said DPW Director Bill Howland.

    So, you still must pay close attention to those parking meters or be prepared to pay some big fines.
