I just found a fixed penalty notice on my car!

It was parked outside on the pavement, and the police must have come along and slapped a bloody ticket on it. They could have knocked on the door and told me to shift it and I would have.

I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of times I have seen any police in this village. But today, obviously, it is time to show the taxpayer where our money goes.

and it is coincidently the end of the month...

here in the states, the police try to meet certain quotas with their tickets, so the amount they give out always seems to rise significantly in the last week of the month...

Ooh, good call. I hadn't thought of that.

So it had nothing to do with me parking illegally, and everything to do with quotas.

I prefer that scenario.
