Milwaukee; tough town
A US parking (enforcement officer) has been criticized – for issuing a ticket to a hearse parked outside a funeral service.
The woman issued ($40) tickets to the hearse, another funeral director’s car and the vehicles of several mourners.
The incident, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was witnessed by Jim Stingl, a journalist on the local Journal-Sentinel newspaper.
The cars were parked outside a brewery where the funeral service for local businessman Bill Penzey was being held.
Mr Stingl says that mourners told the traffic warden that the vehicles were there for a funeral.
“You are not ticketing a hearse, are you?” one asked. “It’s parked illegally,” the traffic warden reportedly replied.

The tickets were later canceled.
