My favorite parking ticket story happened when I first started college. I came up with a friend from high school to give him a tour of the campus. As we were walking through the parking lot, a university cop, who appeared to be leaning on the back side of a car yelled out, "You two, get over here..."

We were like WTF?...but of course went over. He says, "OK, you two hold this car, I'm going to try to push down the window", which was open a couple of inches.

Apparently, someone had parked and forget to set the parking brake, and it was rolling down the slight incline. He then got in, and ordered up to push the car--into a handicapped spot, where he then wrote the appropriate ticket (several hundred dollars, of course).

I've always wondered how that one held up in court...
