Today, as I was driving home, I saw a woman get hit by a car. I immediately parked on the side of the road to assist her. I called an ambulance and stayed with her until they came to get her, comforting her all the while. When I returned to my car, I found a parking ticket in my windshield. FML

There is usually a process by which you can contest the ticket. You MIGHT be able to get out of it since it was an emergency.

Yeah, at least you did the right thing. OP, don't let the parking ticket get to you, because you did the correct thing

I agree. But that's so unfair. Take it to court.

honestly yeah I mean u were pretty much saving someones life but even if not: u did the right thing, saved an innocent life, and then got fined what $50? is there really a price to pay for life?

You did the right thing. Complain about it, cause you had every right to stop considering the emergency situation.If they don't then punch the officer in the face... and write another FML while in prison ;)

What #3 said, im sure the woman will back you up aswell.

Why the hell was the officer giving parking tickets when there's an accident right in front of him...? That's absolute bull. :/

no all police are assholes and dont give a shit about anything but getting paid

Are you that stupid.. Cops don't give parking tickets.. At all. Parking authority does, cops deal with public crisis, which means they were at the scene I guarantee. Check your facts fatass.

Unfortunately they have a quota to make each month or they can lose their job. Either someone was being a real douche or they were really desperate.

I applaud your heroics. Fight that ticket you'll win. Last year my aunt got hit by an SUV which sent her 140+ feet down the road. A cop saw the jackass eat the red light and didn't even get out to comfort her just called the ambulance. She died the next day of massive brain trauma, broken ribs, pelvis, femur, swollen heart, etc. If I could I would pay that ticket for you.

At least you have the comfort of knowing you helped one in need.

Good for you, OP. That was really sweet of you. I'm sure if you fight against that ticket, you'd win.

Not only can you contest the ticket, you can call the issuing officer into court and have them explain to a judge why they were handing out tickets in the middle of an accident scene.
