Here's what Joe Sixpack does when his work van gets tagged by the parking police. He pleads his case with the nice lady with the ticket book, and then his co-worker whips out a metal saw and saws the damn thing down.
UPDATE: Yes, there's no doubt it's a fake, considering the NYPD has no 16th Precinct. Apparently this happened in New York City, and shot via shakycam from inside a taxicab. A few more "oh my Gods" from the person with the camera and we'd almost think this wasn't real. Of course, we just know it has to be. If we could just will it so.
If only Cool Hand Luke had one of those machines, he wouldn't have done hard time.
