Its a shame, but it happens


Its a shame, but it happens

An adolescent bottle nosed female whale got disoreinted and ended up in the Thames River in London. It made it as far as the Battersea Power Station and was grounded when the tide went out. The local marine rescue moved heaven and earth trying to get the poor thing back on course but to no avail. It died.

What does any of this have to do with parking — well while the rescuers were off attempting the rescue, their cars were ticketed by the local traffic wardens. To the tune of about $500.

Although the cars were marked with "marine ambulance" and the like, the wardens did their job. The London Parking group did the right thing — the citations have been voided.
