Police Officer in Roseville Gives Man a Ticket for Warming Up His Car
Most of us start up our cars in the morning to get them warmed up for the morning commute. Apparently a Roseville Michigan man was furious when he was recently given a ticket for warming up his car at his home.
Taylor, the Michigan man, posted a picture of the ticket on his Facebook page and called the officer an insulting name. It's been shared more than 6,000 times.
Police said the key component of the case is whether the key is in the car. Using a remote starter is OK because the key isn't in the car. If the key is in the car, it's a state and local violation, because somebody could take off in the car.
Taylor is scheduled to appear in court later this month. Here's the latest from WILX-TV 10.
