Parking fine on hearse has funeral home boss fuming!August 7th, 2008 - 6:13 pm ICT by ANI
London , Aug 7 (ANI): A funeral home boss is livid after traffic officers slapped him with a parking fine over his hearse with a body and coffin inside.
The wardens charged David Dodson with a fine of 35 pounds when he left the car in a bay outside the funeral home while he was unloading one corpse.
Though the zone has double yellow lines, but his hearses use the space quite often, and thats the ground he contested the fine on.
The car had a coffin inside it. Youd think its a sensitive area but they obviously dont care, The Sun quoted him, as telling about the incident in Newquay, Cornwall .
He added: Id accept it if the law was the same for all but when the mayor was here the wardens walked by.
Restormel council said: Any vehicle in contravention may be ticketed. (ANI)
