Parking warden gives ticket to hearse

As an experienced journalist Jim Stingle a journalist with the Journal-Sentinel newspaper has seen some strange things but this must rank among the strangest.


IA U.S. parking warden has been criticized for issuing a parking ticket to a hearse parked outside a funeral service.

The woman issued £22 parking fines to the hearse, another funeral director's vehicle and the vehicles of a number of mourners.

The incident, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was witnessed by Jim Stingl, a journalist on the local Journal-Sentinelnewspaper.

The motor cars were parked outside a brewery where the funeral service for local entrepreneur Bill Penzey was being held.

Mr Stingl says that mourners told the traffic warden that the vehicles were there for a funeral.

"You are not ticketing a hearse, are you?" one mouner asked. "It's parked illegally," the traffic warden allegedly replied.

Marti Daniels, a manager at Church and Chapel Funeral Service said that never in his experience had he had a parking ticket for parking a hearse outside a church or any place they were conducting a service.

After Jim Stingle contacted parking enforcement officials they imediately agreed to cancel the tickets.

Thomas Sanders, parking enforcement manager for the city, said funerals were intended to be given added consideration.

"Some checkers are over zealous. They're trying to do their jobs," he added.
With grateful thanks and acknowledgement to ace journalist Jim Stingle of the Journal-Sentinel
