Even San Francisco Cops Get Parking Tickets
And here we thought we'd never feel better than the time we witnessed a tow truck get a parking ticket.
We came across this gem of a Twitter pic today that shows what twitter user @HurlyMcDingus says is in fact a parking ticket on a police patrol car illegally parked in Bernal Heights.
We had no idea that cops could get tickets of any kind, so we emailed the SFPD media team to give them a heads up about the apparent defector within the Department of Parking and Traffic.
It's certainly not the first time a cop did something illegal, but it might be one of the first times a cop got a ticket and we got a photo.
Update 1:56 p.m.: Officer Albie Esparza emailed us back and said the parking ticket is "probably not real." "They do not cite marked units," he noted. "Officers are out on patrol. They need to park where they can access their vehicles in case of an emergency response."
Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
