Dave Alsop parked his car at a lot near Torquy harbor in England at 2:49 p.m. He paid for 75 minutes, which allowed him to park until 4:04 p.m. But when he got back to his car at 3:41 p.m., he found a traffic warden had just given him a ticket. When he protested, the man tapped 14.49 into his calculator and then added .75, which gave him 15.24. He insisted this meant that Alsop's time expired at 3:24 p.m. Alsop appealed the ticket and won. The local council also voided all the other incorrect tickets issued by that traffic warden. Council officials say they've given that warden extra training on how to tell time.
