HEMPSTEAD - Scofflaws in Nassau County with outstanding traffic tickets have one week to pay up, or they risk getting their cars booted and towed, officials say. Starting next Monday, a private company contracted by the county has the right to boot and tow cars with unpaid parking or red light violations. Any car parked in a public place could be targeted. Officials say it will cost drivers $166 to have the boot removed. Drivers whose cars are towed will have to pay $125, plus $20 per day for garage storage costs. The county estimates that it's owed $94 million for about 420,000 unpaid parking and traffic tickets from over the past 20 years.Nassau County giving scofflaws the boot
