The ten most unreasonable parking fines of all time

The Daily Mail, via Reason.

Personal favourite:

“Do something amazing today” runs the slogan of the National Blood Service. In Sutton, a traffic warden did just that – by ticketing a blood donor lorry.

The mobile National Blood Service truck had parked at the same spot in Sutton, Surrey, for four years when the zealous parking attendant issued a ticket while donors gave blood inside.

And as a close second:

Manchester bus driver Chris O’Mahony pulled up at a bus stop in his No 77 to let passengers on. While he was handing them their tickets, a Manchester City Council parking attendant handed him one.

Passengers looked on in disbelief as the warden joined the queue to prepare the parking ticket, deposited the £40 notice and walked off.

The driver, apparently, had parked in a restricted area. The attendant said he’d been told to issue tickets to buses that park.
