Parking Tickets

From the BBC News website :

A bus driver was issued with a parking ticket after stopping to pick up passengers. Driver Chris O’Mahony pulled in to Lever Street in the number 77 bus and was handed the £40 ticket for stopping in a restricted area. The ticket was cancelled after the bus company confronted Manchester City Council about what had happened.

A spokeswoman for Manchester City Council said the issuing of the ticket had shown a “lack of judgement” by the warden, who works for parking enforcers Control Plus. The warden has been ordered to undergo “appropriate retraining”, she added.

I have an image of the retraining that involves the traffic warden being shown pictures of large two storey vehicles with lots of windows and usually painted red and being admonished:

This is a bus. Repeat after me “Don’t give tickets to buses”
