One Michigan man left his empty car running in his own driveway to warm up the engine – and came back to find a $128 ticket on the windshield. Is this a fair cop, or a bogus bust?
“The chief said it was a safety issue,” says Taylor, who is fighting the ticket with the help of a volunteer lawyer who heard his story. “But just leaving me a $128 ticket and not even knocking on the door so I could lock the car didn’t solve the safety issue!”
Apparently, the police concern was that the car could be a tempting target for thieves, but ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork says, “It’s his property! His driveway! His car!” No one gets a ticket for leaving the front door of their home unlocked.
“I believe it was five degrees that day,” Taylor adds.
Plastic Surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon has a few safety tips for viewers who warm up their own cars:
• Make sure the parking brake is set.
• Never leave a running car unattended on a hill.
• Try getting a spare key so you can lock the car in your absence to thwart thieves.
