The city is clamping more cars after expanding its wheel boot program throughout the five boroughs.
The Daily News says the city put the metal devices on nearly 54,000 cars in 2013 -- an increase of more than 1,000 percent over the previous year.
Last year, the city expanded its pilot program of booting more cars to include Manhattan and the Bronx.
Under the system, cars with more than $350 in unpaid tickets can be booted.
Drivers must then call a toll-free number and pay their fines to get a code to remove the boot.
City officials tell the News booting cars causes less stress for drivers than towing, and has proven to be a more efficient way of collecting money owed.
