SAGINAW, Mich. – There's a new way Saginaw is getting your attention, if you refuse to pay your parking tickets.

If you thought a boot on your wheel was bad, take a look at this new tactic.

It is called ‘the barnacle it’ and it attaches to the windshield.

"In one week, they more than paid for the devices themselves, and it works. you can't drive your car unless you show up and pay your fines," said Director of Neighborhood Services John Stemple.

Stemple says they didn't use these much over the winter, but say they will be out in full force with them as the weather warms up.
