Man gets $128 ticket for warming auto in his own driveway

Man gets $128 ticket for warming auto in his own driveway

A MI man is upset about a traffic ticket he received.

Like many residents do in the middle of winter, Taylor left his auto unlocked and running in the driveway, hoping it would warm up by the time he returned.

Roseville Police Chief James Berlin says leaving the key in your vehicle while it is unattended is "a public safety issue". Come on now, every person warms up their auto.

Taylor posted a picture of the ticket on his Facebook page and called the officer an insulting name.

A Roseville officer wrote on the ticket, "Vehicle parked in drive with keys in ignition, motor running - no one around". Using a remote starter is okay because the key isn't in the vehicle. "I've only seen one person comment that they got that ticket before".

Berlin won't drop the ticket and said he's annoyed about Taylor's "disparaging comments" to the officer, who ticketed the father of one for doing something he and probably anyone has thought to do since Margaret Wilcox patented a auto heater in 1893.

"That would have been respectful", Taylor said.




Berlin said he's not tearing up the ticket.

Some of Mr. Trupiano's followers say they have since reported the police chief to the city of Roseville for "threats".

WXYZ reports there is no state law that forbids motorists from keeping the vehicle turned on and unattended, but some MI cities do have local ordnances.

"I was there for maybe seven or eight minutes before I noticed the ticket", he told CBS Detroit, noting that he was at his girlfriend's house to drop off diapers for her young son.

Police departments refer to running cars left unattended as "puffers" and warn they are targets of theft.

Mr. Trupiano is scheduled to appear in court later this month. He meant to warm the vehicle up enough so that his significant other and her child could comfortably hop in, but a Roseville police office had other thoughts.
