Parking war: many ignoring tickets, not paying

Related Story

BATON ROUGE- Thousands of dollars are owed for unpaid parking tickets.

News2 attempted to find owners of cars listed at the top of the list, but when we visited some of them, they ran away.

Some people have hundreds.

Like Dameon Roberson. He has two cars on the list; one with 51 tickets another with 148.

There are few consequences for not paying. One, though, is a boot placed on tires.

The city does make deals with habitual offenders, asking for an amount under what is owed to clear fines.

Baton Rouge has more than 50,000 unpaid parking tickets.
