Dog gets parking ticket
WHEN Ingeburg Kaminski, 75, left a shop in Essen, Germany, she noticed that her dog Tessa had given a €35 fixed penalty notice.
“I was only away for 20 minutes. They said Tessa had been left in the wrong place and was blocking the pavement. But she was sitting quietly and people had plenty of room to walk around her. She’s sweet and tiny and loves attention, she’d never hurt anyone.”
Well, she never bit the warden who gave her a ticket. But should the ticket depend on the pet? Would a hungry pit bull/ Rottweiler cross be a nuisance sat by the sweet shop or playground? And what of pet toygers or tortoises or spiders?
