WOW! So that's what Arnie did in between filming T3 and running for governor!! -)
I'll always remember, many years ago (before it became common to expect traffic wardens to pop up behind bushes with pre-written tickets) nearly dropping my glass in shock when sitting outside a pub in Bath at closing time on a Sunday night and in the time it took to finish my last pint seeing a traffic warden coming along and writing a ticket for a car on yellow lines, and then seeing the tow truck coming about 10 min's later and taking the car away!
Your friend has been really unlucky, but given the way human nature works (i.e. we'll all break a rule if we think we'll get away with it), then what's a workable alternative to having rules and sticking by them?
(Just a thought, but in the same way that there are council noise squads that are - supposedly - on call 24/7 and will respond to a call, do you think that there are flying squads of parking wardens? And if so, then do you think that someone could conceivably spilt the beans on your friend for parking in a disabled space?)
...if you press it, they will come.
