Texas Police Are Giving Out “Coloring” Tickets To Help Bad Drivers Park



Whoever thought of this deserves a raise. How frustrating is it when you find a parking spot only to realize the driver next to you parked on or over the line making the space too small. Even worse, when it’s a handicap accesible space.

A Southlake Police officer came across a Ram pickup parked over the line of the parking lot, spilling over into a handicap spot. With some quick thinking, the officer printed out the department’s badge and a witty caption making fun of the driver’s parking job. The note was left under the windshield wiper for the driver. The caption reads “We noticed you had a little trouble staying in the lines when you parked next to a handicapped space,” reads the prank piece of paper, above an outline of the Southlake Police’s logo. “Maybe if you practice coloring our patch and staying in the lines here, it could help you avoid citations in the future?”

It was a pretty clever way to (hopefully) have drivers thinking of others next time they park!

The original FaceBook post reads:

We try to avoid snark and sass (we REALLY do 😉), but sometimes our fair citizens make it hard.

Please stay in the lines when you park ESPECIALLY if it’s next to a handicapped spot or you might be the recipient of one of our new fliers.

Be kind and drive kind and park kind! Let this graphic be an attention grabbing example so we don’t have to end up going to FedEx Kinko’s and making like thousands of copies of these.
