My boss came in fuming today - seems his eldest son got a $95.00 ticket for, get this, leaving his keys in his car while it was parked in front of his house. WTF? It seems the officer got out to inspect the car because it was parked close to a fire hydrant (but evidently not close enough to warrant a ticket). Granted, leaving your keys in your car isn't the brightest thing to do, but why the hell should you be ticketed for it? (The officer called it an "unattended vehicle.") I could see the police not wanting to be bothered with tracking down a stolen car, but then again, if they have nothing better to do than to hand out tickets for "offenses" like this, maybe they could use a little excitement.
