ALLENTOWN, Pa. - People who don’t pay parking tickets might get one of those metal boots on their car.

Now, cities are trying a new device designed to be easier for the authorities putting it on and for the motorists who take it off.

The Barnacle blocks the windshield and is held on with giant suction cups.

A driver with one can pay their bills over the phone with a credit card and then get a code to take of the device.
