Parkeringsbøter

In the paper this morning, 50 000 parking tickets were issued in Tronheim during 2007, taking in 132,5 million kroner, or $27,5 million dollars! (That includes 2600 pig tickets. Piggdekker are studded tires like we had on our station wagon this winter. If you use them, you must pay a $200 fee to cover damage to the roads or risk an expensive ticket. Pigg = stud, so ladies be careful in Norway if you call a man a "pig", as you might be sending the wrong message.)
