Parking Wars
Parking Wars is a reality series that premiered on the A&E Network in 2008. The show follows the day-to-day jobs of parking enforcement officers and impound lot workers, as they cope with irate drivers and car owners who get served with citations or car-immobilizing boots.

The show has three segments, out of which one or all of them may be used in any particular episode:
  • Ticketing — Officers search out vehicles with expired parking meters or otherwise illegally parked.
  • Booting — A patrol van roams the streets with special image-scanning equipment that reads vehicle license plates. The plate numbers are run through the city's database, and those that are flagged for outstanding warrants get booted.
  • Impound Lot — The clerks there have to contend with angry car owners trying to get their vehicles back, but may be hampered by not enough money or bureaucratic red tape.

Parking Wars is subject to one or more of the following tropes, including but not limited to:
