Car Ticketed: Dead Dude Behind The Wheel

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police in New York said a vehicle was issued a parking ticket while a man was dead in the driver`s seat.

Investigators said Nicholas Rappold, 21, was slumped in the front seat of his Jeep Cherokee Tuesday morning when a traffic officer placed a ticket on the vehicle for being illegally parked during street sweeping, the New York Daily News reported Thursday." - UPI

parking ticket
Regardless of our religion, or lack thereof, most of us expect to find peace and tranquility in death. No more taxes, bills, or parking tickets.

But this hapless fellow suffers the indignity of being slapped with a parking ticket when he`s dead. Thousands of people are laughing at his expense; I`m sorry but the idea of a corpse getting a parking ticket is humorous.

I don`t feel the slightest bit of sympathy for this fool, police suspect he died of an overdose.

Let this story be a cautionary tale, fool around with drugs and you might end up like this loser.

The police department voided the parking ticket.
