COLD-hearted traffic wardens slapped an £80 ticket on a car — after the driver stopped for a cat she had run over.
Mum Carla Barroso, 40, was overcome with guilt when the moggy dashed under her wheels. She pulled partly on to the pavement and spent five minutes searching bushes for the creature. Two wardens swooped as she returned to her car cradling the badly-injured cat in her arms in Ruislip, Middlesex. Carla, who is to appeal, said: “They gave me a ticket for parking with my wheels on the pavement. “I explained to them about the cat and they had to have seen the whole thing happen. “I wasn’t obstructing the road. It’s ridiculous.”
A spokesman for Hillingdon Council said: “Parking attendants are instructed to issue parking tickets where they see vehicles with one or more wheels on the pavement or a verge, unless exemptions apply.” The cat was last night fighting for life at a vets.
UNLESS EXEMPTIONS APPLY - so a half-squashed cat isn't a good enough exemption?? B*stards! I hope her appeal is successful!
