Woman jailed for tampering with parking ticket in Dubai

A 25-year-old German woman has been sentenced to three months in jail after she tampered with a parking ticket.
The Court charged the woman with forgery after the public prosecution recommended for strictest penalty for her.
The offence took place on June 16, 2016. A ticket inspector noticed that one of the cars had a ticket on where the month had been changed by hand. "The fare paid and the parking time did not match," the inspector told the prosecutor.
"It looked obvious that the ticket was issued on May 16 but the car owner changed the date on the ticket to June 16 and left it on the front of the car. I reported the matter to my superior and then to the police."
The defendant admitted that she had got a paid parking ticket on May 16, 2016 and she used the same ticket on June 16, 2016, by changing the month from 5 to 6 so as to avoid buying a new ticket.

Traffic warden photographed parking on double yellow lines

Workers in an industrial estate were left shocked after a traffic warden parked on double yellow lines before proceeding to check the parking of others.

A passer by photographed the car after seeing a warden in uniform, with ticketing machine, get out and lock his car to begin his rounds.

The photographer joked: “We were wondering whether his was going to be the first ticket he issued or the last.” 

He continued: “We could not believe it when he pulled up, got out of his car and walked off, presumably to do his rounds, bold as brass. The county council put double yellow lines all over the industrial estate because of the parking problems, yet it seems that doesn’t apply to traffic wardens. I guess that if you are the warden there is no one who is going to ticket you. We were just so struck by the irony. He was parked there for around three-quarters of an hour and then left. I don’t know whether he gave it up as a bad job or had a very lucrative trip. Either way he should have some questions to answer.”

The photo of the car was sent to Nottinghamshire County Council, to which Mr Gary Wood, of the highways team replied:

“Although we haven’t had a direct complaint made to the council, we have been made aware of a Civil Enforcement Officer parking on double yellow lines on Wednesday afternoon (of last week) along Brunel Drive, so will be following this up and carefully looking into the circumstances.
“While most Civil Enforce-ment Officer work is carried out on foot, occasionally a car is necessary so they are exempt from most parking restrictions while carrying out their duties.
“This includes double yellow lines, as alternative parking is not always practicably possible.”
