A woman who stayed a few minutes after closing time at the Pinnaroo cemetery in Brisbane was handed a $280 fine referred to as a grief tax. The woman, whose hubby had just been buried that day, was apparently mourning at his graveside a little too long. Oooh but lucky she didn’t dawdle on the weekend or public hols because she might have found herself $1,450 out of pocket. Um, did I mention the fine is per Half hour? The council that runs the cemetery says the fines are to cover staff overtime costs.

Oh for crying out loud who pays a lawyer $1,500 to contest a $100 parking ticket? Well, some dude from British Columbia did. Evidently,the guy missed the six days window to challenge the “parking too close to a driveway” violation and got an additional fine. So he hired a lawyer to contest the 6 day window and won. Yippee, now you are out of pocket $1,400 just so you could make a point. Way to go.
Dude gets a $50 fine for not riding in a bike lane, so what does he do? He makes a video of all the reasons why you can’t always stay in the lanes on the busy streets of New York. Hmm, lazy assed cop vs death wish dude!
