He should sue the maker of the alcohol, the city, the owner of the parked car and the maker of his car. The American Dream.

And this is why my vehicles don't get parked on the street in this neighborhood.

$10 cab is a whole lot cheaper people...

Clearly this is the sign's fault...the driver was framed.

why not call a taxi ? $10.00 is much cheaper than a dui.
