Barnacle VS Boot

Deployed barnacles are more visible than traditional parking boots, making them a safer option for motorists with other issues on their minds and a deterrent to would-be scofflaws. In healthcare situations where a non-compliant parking job can be a safety concern, the Barnacle also acts as an efficient first step; unlike with a boot, there’s no need to remove the device before towing.
