Santa Claus Issued A New York City Traffic Ticket

In New York City, it was widely publicized when a man dressed as Santa Claus was issued a NYC traffic ticket for being double parked in November 2008.  The 60-year old retired school teacher dressed as Kriss Kringle was ticketed while handing out Christmas gifts nearby.  Less commonly known is the outcome of Santa’s case.  He contested the $115 but Scrooge-like parking officials unfortunately were not in the Christmas spirit finding him guilty as charged.  Bottom line:  Even a good costume won’t get you out of a ticket.
