What is the matter with this silly world? I have just sat through two news broadcasts on the TV which aired the story of a woman whose car had been photographed in a “No Stopping Zone.” She was on her way to the airport when her baby mucked up in the car and so she decided to stop her car and feed it, the baby, that is.
She subsequently was sent a parking infringement notice for $120 and she is annoyed about it. Why should she have to pay when she has many expenses? She has better things to do with that $120 than pay a fine for breaking the law.
Apparently, she doesn’t understand that if there is a “No Stopping” notice it means that it is dangerous to park in that spot.
Now this “victim”, Renee Buckley, has already been informed that she can appeal her “special” circumstances. Baby was hungry and couldn’t wait a few minutes to be fed in a safe and legal area.
What would have happened had some car crashed into her as she parked in that dangerous spot? Why did she place her baby in danger like that?
For crying out loud, why is it that some people think they are above the law? And why does the media report such silly stories?
This is most definitely a storm in a B-Cup.
Pathetic joke, I know…but I just couldn’t resist making it.
