A German police officer has single-handedly modified a road sign to issue a parking ticket. It didn’t stop at one time. Now he is forced to work on a desk.
The 33-year-old Hanover police officer manipulated the road sign in order to issue a parking ticket to an alleged offender. However, the police officer was filmed climbing onto the roof of his police car and scratching a white arrow off the road sign in front of the taxi rank. The white arrow marks the end or beginning of the no-stop zone.
Reportedly, the officer was annoyed by a 43-year-old man who parked his car there. That’s why the police commissioner would have scratched off the arrow that closed the no-parking zone with his car key. According to the Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung the officer said after removing the arrow: “Now the parking ban applies everywhere.” The incident is said to have taken place in March this year, but after another misstep, the police have only now taken action against the officer.
Although the responsible police department has previously admitted to the newspaper that the colleague has misbehaved, he does not seem to be aware of any harm. Because recently the police officer changed the same road sign again. A police spokesperson then announced ‘possible consequences’, which have now probably been implemented: the officer involved is on desk duty.
