What's Your Excuse?

I'm a pretty law abiding individual. I've only been fined for illegal parking once. There are some situations, including medical emergencies etc., where most people consider overstaying your welcome in the car park is justified. This is apparently not the case in Melbourne, Australia, where the authorities have been trying to fine a 71-year-old corpse for illegal parking!

It seems that the parking attendant, who is presumably challenged in the nasal department as well as visually impaired, failed to notice anything unusual when he attached the ticket to the windscreen!

You really have to wonder what would be considered a legitimate reason for parking too long in Maroondah?
