A UFO Got me a Parking Ticket

According to the UK’s Sun Newspaper:

The UFO spotter said he was so shocked by what he had seen that he drove into a bus lane, according to parking appeals made to Southwark Council in south London.

Another cheeky driver said: “I’m colour blind, so I thought the yellow line was green.”

Other reasons given to the council over the last two years have included:

  • It was raining. I thought I could park anywhere if the weather was bad;
  • I don’t know what the yellow lines mean;
  • I had to pick up and take an injured dog to the vet and did not want the animal to endure any unnecessary extra pain by limping further to the car;
  • I was only sleeping in the back of the car. The parking attendant could have asked me to move the car instead of giving me a ticket, although he would not have seen me as I had a blanket over my head.
