Would-Be Drunk Driver Leaves "Pity" Note On Car, Avoids Ticket

posted by Debbie McFadden -

WAUSAU, Wis. - After a night of drinking in Wisconsin, a driver made a “safe choice” to not drink and drive.

But that meant leaving their car parked overnight in a metered lot.

When an officer found the car and was ready to slap on a ticket on the windshield, he saw a handwritten note that read, “Please take pity on me. I walked home … safe choices.”

Police said their parking officers can appreciate people making smart decisions and having a good sense of humor.

So the officer let the driver off easy. He issued a warning ticket, with a special note in reply: "Pity Granted, Just A Warning."

This tactic doesn’t guarantee you’ll be let off the hook, though. So if you’re planning on throwing back a few, it’s still best to plan ahead and arrange a ride.

And never drink and drive.
