    Default poser gets reward

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/...r-in-city.html

    Man with "XXXXXXX" number plate receives parking fines for every unidentified car in city

    The owner of a car with the personalised number plate "XXXXXXX" has received more than $19,000 worth of parking tickets intended for other vehicles.

    Traffic wardens in Birmingham, Alabama, enter seven letter Xs onto their forms when they issue tickets to cars without plates.
    Unfortunately the default code matches the vanity plate of a motorist from the nearby town of Huntsville, who has received hundreds of incorrect payment notices over the past year.


    Scottie Roberson, 38, chose the personalised plate as a combination of his nickname "Racer X", and his favourite number, seven.
    Mr Robertson says that he has contacted city officials to alert them to the problem, but the notices continue to land on his doorstep.
    At one stage he was receiving up to 10 fines a day – all for parking offences in different areas of a city he has only visited once in five years.
    "Whenever I call, nobody seems to want to help me," he told The Birmingham News. "One woman said not to worry about it because they didn't have the manpower to come arrest me."
    Since going public with his complaint, officials have arranged for the fines to be dismissed and are working on a new ticketing system for cars without plates.

    surely it would just be easier for officials to take the plate off him and reserve it so it won't get issued?
