Brian Nelson got a notice from city officials in St. Paul, Minnesota, telling him he was delinquent in paying a $50 parking fine issued in December. Just one problem: The ticket was issued against a 1941 Ford that Nelson says is inoperable and has been parked in his garage for a decade at his home in Fargo, North Dakota. When Nelson explained this to city officials, they said he'd have to travel the 250 miles to St. Paul to try to clear the matter up or pay the fine. But after he went to a Minneapolis TV station with his story, an official admitted someone had made a mistake and said the matter could be cleared up over the phone.
