Woman gets $81 ticket for parking car with windows down

Yahoo News  In Nanaimo, Canada, Tara Ludvigson-Hill thought someone was playing a joke on her when she received an $81 ticket for parking her car with the windows rolled down. When Ludvigson-Hill parked at her workplace on a hot day, she left her windows open and thought nothing of it. She told the Nanaimo Daily News, “I’ve been parking in the same spot for years and when the weather is hot, I leave my windows open. I have never heard of anything so ridiculous.” The citation was issued for violation of Section 191 subsection 2 of the British Columbia Motor Vehicle Act which states that parked vehicles must be secured. Like many others, Ludvigson-Hill was not aware of the law. The officer told her that ignorance of the law was not an excuse, but eventually gave her a warning and no fine was issued.

    Ignorance of the law is no excuse? Is the U.S. government listening to this? Patriot Act? NDAA? MF Global? Fast and Furious? Obama’s Birth Certificate? Drug trafficking? Fed Reserve? Protesters getting beat up? Cops tasering the victims? Money laundering? Zionist controlled government? Military on the streets? Any of these begin to ring a bell about “Ignorance of the law is no excuse?” But a parking ticket for having your windows down and leaving your car unsecured is SOOOO much more bigger of a problem or threat to everyone than all of that. Keeping your car windows up and your car secured is a high priority. G14 classified type stuff. I understand.

      They are not protecting you or your property. my emphasis in last statement the ‘you’ and ‘your’.

      They are protecting your insurance company from a potential claim and get to either squeeze some money out of you for breaking a law, or from the perpetrator that would make such claim possible by stealing from or stealing your car…
      After they have made their money and you by your cooperation make the impact and punishment as low as humanly possible on your side, A sister company can be enabled to make a sh!tload of money by milking money from the taxpayers for the incarceration of the criminal and for the underpayed labor this rightless slave is now going to generate in the prison industry. But that is only if the Lawyer guilt is ready and done with him, and they set the bar high, as high as possible.

      “Ignorance of the law is no excuse?” It IS the excuse.

    I live in Nanaimo. There is more police there than any other part of Canada.
    They have nothing to do but ticket.
    Just the corporation trying to make money to justify itself.

    It’s all economics.
    With benefits and pension the average cop gets about $100,000 per year. Uniforms, cars, guns, tasers and donuts add another $100,000 per year.
    Writing only six $81 tickets a day takes an hour or two and almost pays the cost of the cop with any additional ticket revenue a cop generates paying for police bonuses and kickbacks to judges and politicians.

    Both ends of the spectrum are ridiculous. Why can’t the government and their hired goons (the police) just leave people alone and stop making up crimes?

    In Ottawa (not sure about now but for sure a few years ago) the law was that you HAD to leave your car unlocked, with nothing inside. The rationale was that if the door is open they won’t smash the window, and if the car is empty – there’s nothing to steal.

    That at least makes more sense than telling people they CAN’T leave their windows down or their door unlocked…

    Go pursue some real criminals!

    Who the hell comes up with this crap?!? Oh yeah, the sleazy lawyers who make up new laws to keep themselves and their friends in business. This is just another chunk of liberty hacked out of our rights. Who the hell are the police to tell you how to leave your car?!? What’s next? Are they going to watch you take a dump and ensure you are using legal and authorized wiping techniques?!? This police state needs to come to an end NOW!

    ignorance of the probability of your head rolling down the street is no excuse, either

    Back in the early 70s in Ottawa, we could leave our car doors unlocks when the cars were on the street. There was no danger from theft or vandalism.

    My father came in to town to visit with his mother, my grandmother. When we left the vehicle, we did not lock it – but the windows were up just in case of rain. When Dad saw that we did not lock the car, he commented on this. We told him, essentially, “No problem. There is no theft problem.”

    Dad shook his head and said, “It has been so long since I have lived where you can do that.”
    (We grew up in Vernon, BC, but the family moved to Mill Valley, California, in
    1947. I moved back to Canada in 1955 to start at UBC. This is the history behind Dad’s statement about being so long away from a place where cars did not have to be locked.)

    I live in Victoria, near Nanaimo. The most important thing to know about this is that the officer is wrong in his interpretation of 191(2) of The Motor Vehicles Act.
    191(2) states that the owner has a duty to prevent unauthorized use of the vehicle. This is done by have a lock on the ignition and steering column.

    If the office is correct in assuming that a motor vehicle must have lockable doors and windows, then neither a motorcycle nor a scooter is a motor vehicle.
    This would means that all of those who have been given speeding tickets on motorcycles and scooters (under the Motor Vehicle Act) need to be refunded.
    There is no need for there to be a licence plate either.

    Obviously the officer is dead wrong and the purpose of the lock and ignition key on the steering column is to meet the requirements of 191(2).

    The other issue is “unauthorized use”. The owner of a car can authorize someone to sit inside the car if he or she feels like it. For example a friend who is being offered a ride home may wait in the car until the owner finishes working. Similarly, a child who is at a school nearby may sit in the car while waiting for the parent to operate the vehicle.

    You don’t need to have common sense to be in the police force. They call it a FORCE because it is for the school tough guys who couldn’t pass the exams.

      Your statement is correct. What people don’t consider is that the ‘police’ do not have any greater comprehension of legal than anyone else that is not a BAR attorney. Police simply make assessments, then arrests or citations, expecting that the bureaucratic lawyers will find some statute from the millions to apply. Then the accused will either capitulate and plea, or pay a whole bunch of money to other lawyers to play act in a court, as if to get them off of the ‘charges’. They are going to be charged, alright, like the living credit card they are.

      None of these ‘laws’ exist in fact. Each is a hearsay, non-contractual piece of paper nonsense. The only power comes from people individually and collectively presuming that they are mere subjects to a divine and magnanimous authority of bankers, and their henchmen.

      When a cop says ‘I am arresting you for X’ that cop is making a guess on any infraction, but also brandishing unbridled authority that exists only at the point of a gun. This is all they have; it’s thugs, scary stories and fear. They advertise their necessity and advertise the consequences of going against that necessity all over the place.

      All they want is people to cower to the point of offering over all of their labor energy for all of their life. The techniques must be working cause the world is embroiled in it.

    TICKET – Totally Insane Cops Knowingly Enforcing Tyranny.

    all crime is commercial.
    this is why there are so many statutes. millions of them. there are so many that it’s almost impossible to not commit some sort of “crime” or violation.
    it’s designed that way to collect revenue.

    look up uniform commercial code or maritime admiralty law
