“What, that’s not a perk of the job?”

parking-tickets.jpgDawn Michelle Nyberg used to be a clerk with a county Traffic Violations Bureau in Minnesota. As part of her job, Nyberg dealt with parking violations handed out to folks. Trouble is, she also dealt with parking violations she had been hit with. In fact, between 2005 and 2007 she had received 70-plus parking citations, using her job to “fix” them all. Sometimes she changed info in the computer databases so the citations couldn’t be tracked to her and other times she just vanished the citations from the computer system completely.

Nyberg resigned in June and is now facing quite a few charges, including theft, forgery and misconduct.

Seventy parking tickets in two years! I mean, what the hell?
