Parking tickets – nobody likes getting them. It’s probably fair to say that parking enforcement officers catch a lot of stink eyes as well as some choice words. But whatcha gonna do when they come for you?
One young driver in Nova Scotia got an early taste of what it’s like to fight for his right to park. The young man is a regular at the Halifax waterfront, and is often spotted with his parents. Attracted to the boardwalk, shops, and social life of the place, Declan Tramley loves hanging out.
However, one afternoon he caught the attention of Constable Shawn Currie, whose job it is to police the area. This also means keeping an eye on parking violators. In the video, the constable remarked that the area brings a lot of motorcyclists. A skilled motorcycle driver himself who often cruises with his dad, 3-year-old Declan received his first ticket.
No stranger to his fellow bikers, he knows where and how to find them and their cluster of bikes on the strip. He dons a leather jacket and hangs with them too, admiring their motorcycles and swapping road stories. According to Constable Currie, on the day of the incident, Declan rolled up and parked his ride just like the other biker dudes. He then walked away.
