A woman in England left a note on the windshield: If this van is for anyone but No. 14 you have no right to park here. They did because they were answering an emergency call. The woman was arrested.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Years ago, I had the satisfaction of asking a parking enforcement officer to move his illegally parked car. The guy laughed. It worked out. Not so in Stoke-on-Trent, England, where a woman saw an ambulance parked in front of her house.

They were answering an emergency call, and the woman was arrested. It's MORNING EDITION.
