Julian Harris had
been visiting his family in Brisbane, Australia, and when he
returned to his car he found a police officer had ticketed him for
parking on a footway, parking on the wrong side of the street
his window partially rolled down. Harris said he’d only left
the window down to keep the car from getting too hot on a warm day.
But police officials say that under Queensland law if a driver is
more than three meters from his car he must park it with the engine
off, the key removed from the ignition, the parking brake engaged
and windows rolled down no more than five centimeters.
