OK, let's be honest now, I did once leave my car parked with the handbrake on but (for some reason I don't recall) not in gear. And the handbrake was sufficiently ******** that the car rolled backwards a couple of feet.

Over a row of nails in the tarmac designating the boundary between private land and the public highway.

So I got a parking ticket, despite the fact that when I'd left the car it had been entirely on private land.

So I had a choice: (a) pay the parking ticket, or (b) challenge it on the grounds that I didn't park the car where it was found, it only ended up there because of an unroadworthy handbrake.

I chose (a).
