The bus' front door was swung open, and there was a big yellow boot on the front left tire.

The Philadelphia School District did not respond to calls regarding the booted bus as of Thursday afternoon.

We did find out from the Philadelphia Parking Authority [PPA] that vehicles with three or more unpaid parking tickets or red light tickets are eligible to be booted after their owners receive a series of notices.

Once a vehicle is booted, it will be towed within 72 hours if the owner doesn't settle up with the PPA.
