I once was IN COURT for an erroneous parking ticket. 4 months of letters an dcommunicatiosn and the "compjuter system" still wanted me to pay the fine. So I wen tto court and having a great defense lawyer ( represetnted myself ) got off with it AND the SHerrif ( Scottish equivelent of the judge ) not only APOLOGISED to me but torn a strip off the prosecution Procurator Fiscal ( == District Attorney ) and ahd them pay all my expenses All along the way a human being coudl have stopped it but the computer systema dn the "Process" doesn't allow individuals to make choices like that .

Read a science fiction short story like this once. Really wish I could remember the title or author, but this guy wrote a book about pirates, and there was some confusion in the computer system and they ended up thinking he was a smuggler, and after more confusion he ended up on death row with the governor pardoning him, but a computer error stopped it, so he was executed.

That was actually a pretty horrible summary, but hopefully you get the point.

Shocking.
Not that you can't park, but the fact you're old enough to have a license.
