A spokesman said: "We can take a joke as well as the next person and it was a very convincing prank.

"But whether it was made of metal or snow it was still obstructing a road that should have been clear."



Do the German people lack a sense of humor?  I mean, they make a great car, but have they ever made  Dumm und Dümmer?

Saw this on another site yesterday, the cop's were in on the joke, and played along putting the ticket on for the artist to take a picture of.

So then the car really  did not get a ticket , they realised it was just a sculpture. Now there is a big pile of snow where there shouldn't be.

/yes, I am a blast at parties

/it's not that they lack one, it's just that it has been systematically exterminated

However, who are they getting to pay the ticket?  Are they going to scribble a plate number and VIN on it so they can track it down to some poor schmo and make him pay?

Just hit it with a plow and move on.

So... How was a ticket issued without a plate or VIN? If all they did was leave a ticket envelope as a joke (which is a mildly amusing reaction), why did this make even local news?

Well you see the problem is that there is a big pile of snow obstructing the ability of plows to remove piles of snow from the road.

"But whether it was made of metal or snow it was still obstructing a road that should have been clear."

So in other words, ticketing it was a good thing because the owner would be penalized for parking it there?

From what I heard, the Police gave it a ticket as a joke, not because they thought it was a real car.  It's not like they could put down anything identifying about it.  The quotes in the article are just made up

The wardens eventually realised they'd been had when they tried to scrape the snow off the number plate and found there was no plate, just snow

So then it didn't really get a ticket, right? I don't think they can issue a ticket without the license plate number, and there's no point in issuing one without it.

I question the validity of this article.

Fake situation is fake.

"NOTAG" for the license plate (or "OHNENUMMERSCHILD" as the case may be)    http://www.snopes.com/autos/law/noplate.asp

Amusing, unless that goddam thing is actually taking up a perfectly good parking spot, in which case I'm getting out the blow dryer!
