Some German pranksters in Aachen built a snow car overnight in a no parking zone and traffic wardens came and gave the car a ticket the next morning. But when police found out it was all snow and there was no car underneath they were less than impressed.
The wardens eventually realised they'd been had when they tried to scrape the snow off the number plate and found there was no plate, just snow," they added.
But the prank has received a frosty reception from local police.
A spokesman said: "We can take a joke as well as the next person and it was a very convincing prank.
"But whether it was made of metal or snow it was still obstructing a road that should have been clear."
HAHAHA! Take that you parking enforcers! I am going out at 3am to create snow cars everywhere!
