Brickbat: Cracked


Julian Harris had been visiting his family in Brisbane, Australia, and when he returned to his car he found a police officer had ticketed him for parking on a footway, parking on the wrong side of the street and leaving his window partially rolled down. Harris said he'd only left the window down to keep the car from getting too hot on a warm day. But police officials say that under Queensland law if a driver is more than three meters from his car he must park it with the engine off, the key removed from the ignition, the parking brake engaged and windows rolled down no more than five centimeters.
