Stolen SF Car Gets 29 Tickets On Same Block, Cops Can't Find It

If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair... and some parking tickets on your windshield. And those Department of Transportation and Parking enforcers are ruthless- why, they'll tow your car faster than Inspector Callahan will put a .44 slug through a miscreant's liver if a license plate check indicates that you haven't paid your outstanding tickets. However, don't expect them to do anything if a plate check shows they've found a stolen car- that's not their problem! Michelle Vuckovich had her '00 Civic ripped from her garage and started getting parking tickets in the mail a few weeks later, mostly awarded on the same San Francisco block. And- whaddya know!- a quick trip to that area and she found her car. [San Francisco Chronicle]
