He put 40 centimes in a meter for just a 4 minute stop to drop his wife, who has cancer, as the doctors. He was back 5 minutes later to find a municipal police officer writing a ticket.

The agent was unmoved by his story and continued to write. The man pointed out the ticket writing process took longer than his stay.

A police spokesman says the law doesn’t allow for any lenience.
