What is a parking control officer to do when a legally parked vehicle is pushed into a no-parking zone following a collision? Write out a parking ticket, of course. In a YouTube video, the car’s owner, Patricia Baldwin of Brooklyn, is seen confronting the officer who tickets her for blocking a nearby crosswalk.

The New York Post reports that witnesses saw a black Toyota strike a parked blue Honda that then rear-ended Baldwin’s vehicle, forcing it into the crosswalk. “I had two minutes left on my meter,” Baldwin says. “What are you giving me a ticket for? If you saw an accident like this, wouldn’t you think something had to happen to this car, for it to be up on the sidewalk and almost smashed into a pole?” The New York Police Department officer initially refused to rescind the charge, but the ticket was later withdrawn by the police.
