rockie29,

Can't make those car payments? Park it with the keys in it and the windows down . . . just remember to take your house key off the ring when you do it.

And as for the handicapped parking spots, how about not parking in them unless you're really handicapped, even if you have the tags so you can haul Grandma to the bar.

Hey everyone, good morning to all! Well, I have to say this particular Record might take the cake for most bizarre incidents in a given day. I never seen someone pour gasoline on bushes, but kudos to the caller who reported this, they might have prevented a possible arson attempt on property. I see that 'skateboarders' lunged at a car, and a lit torch was seen on the side of the road. I guess a lit torch on the side of the road at nite is 'suspicious' unless it was part of the Olympic torch relay, however maybe the person lost something on the side of the road like a cellphone or wallet. I laughed at the report of the car with the doors open with the key in the ignition, with no one in it. This person is lucky to still have a car, only here would he or she still have their car. Maybe they didn't want the car, or wanted to see if someone would take it lol! A lot of unnecessary 'suspicious' car reports that ended up being false alarms. It seems like these are increasing at an alarming rate. Parking in handicapped spot is not cool, unless you have the proper tags, I must say.
