How often do we complain about what we think is an unfair parking ticket?
Or complain that the cops don’t ticket someone who’s clearly parked illegally?
This story splits the difference.
A Westport police officer spotted a painting contractor’s truck parked past the “Do Not Park Beyond Here” sign on Hillspoint Road, near Positano’s.
Yet rather than whip out his pen, he crossed the street and started knocking on doors.
He figured the truck belonged to someone working on a nearby house. He wanted to cut the guy a break.
It took only a couple of tries before the cop found his man. He gratefully moved his truck.
It was not a huge event — barely a small one.
But it made an enormous impression on one hard-working painter — and one alert, and very impressed “06880” reader who saw the whole thing.
