Seattle Parking cops do not discriminate

It doesn't matter if you are dead -- if you are parked 3 hours in a 2 hour parking zone, you get a ticket! No special treatment for the metabolically-challenged! I would also like to point out that the Meter Maid Brigade failed to notice the dead driver not just once, but *twice*. Even after knocking on the window to point out the ticket, our Highly Trained and Observant Parking Enforcement Official just assumed our room-temperature friend "was a sound sleeper." Well, yes. Yes he was. Notice the past tense.

I wonder if the guy's estate will have to pay the ticket? Priorities, people!

Just watch how fast we nail somebody smoking in a no-smoking zone, though -- okay, a doobie doesn't count -- innocent non-smokers are at risk of maybe *dying* from anthropogenically-generated GHGs, yanno..."
