Somewhat Playing by the Rules - the Sunday Five


Gee, that does not look like a mobility scooter to me.  It looks like someone is playing fast and loose with the rules.  We all do in some way, hence this weeks Sunday five. 

1: Have you ever parked in a no parking zone?
2: Have you ever not put money in the parking meter - risking a ticket? 
3: Have you ever driven the wrong way down a one-way street? 
4: Used someone's handicap parking permit, when that person was not in the car with you? 
5: Have you ever passed a car in a no passing zone?

My answers: 
1: Have you ever parked in a no parking zone? - Nope
2: Have you ever not put money in the parking meter - risking a ticket? - Yes - I have paid a handful of parking tickets over the years. 
3: Have you ever driven the wrong way down a one-way street? - once or twice. 
4: Used someone's handicap parking permit, when that person was not in the car with you? - Yes. 
5: Have you ever passed a car in a no passing zone?  Once a very-very long time ago.  There was someone driving about 10 miles and hour, I pulled over to go around and realized that the motorcycle behind me had flashing blue lights on it - I paid the ticket and I have never done that again.  

Your answers?

  5. Puffs out little chest proudly, coz I can say NO to all 5.

    Scored a few speeding fines in my day though, apart from the times the nice coppers let me off because I was on my way to or from work and was in my nurse's uniform... Coppers can be very nice chappies at times. Not sure any chapess cops would have let me off, mind.
