The Law is the Law. No Excuses!

An elderly man was found dead late Tuesday in a parked car that had been ticketed earlier in the day on a street in an unincorporated industrial area near Pico Rivera.
A maintenance worker from the shop who went to investigate said a parking ticket on the car was marked as being written about 11 a.m., said Chantelle Amaya, assistant manager at L.A. Freightliner. “The poor man was out there all day,” Amaya said.

Nobody knows, really, if the man was actually in the car when the ticket was given, but it’s absolutely not being ruled out. The more intriguing part of the story, however, was a reference to a similar incident in Los Angeles last December:

In December, an elderly woman was found in the front passenger seat of a crumpled car in a San Fernando Valley tow yard. The woman had been left in the car for a day after paramedics removed her son from the same vehicle after a crash.

Woah. That’s an oversight.
