A playful yet hard-working resident in the north of Montreal decided on a winter project designed to confuse ticket-wielding parking enforcement officers of the city, and it seemed to have worked.
Via , photos of the work done by Simon Laprise, a machinist in the city, were posted to Reddit of a car made entirely of snow seemingly “parked” on the illegal side of a residential street. The car is a remarkable rendition of a Delorean DMC-12 or some other sleek sports coupe, complete with what appears to be a real windshield wiper under which a parking ticket would normally go. The photos show not just one, but eventually two police cars investigating this “ghost parker,” and the officers may have initially thought it was a real car covered in snow. Unfortunately, there are no photos of a tow truck trying to take the car away, but the officers did leave Laprise a ticket – not for a fine, but with a note that read “You made our night hahahahaha :)”.
