Man pays parking fine with toilet paper

A man who protested a parking fine by sending his payment in toilet roll has escaped punishment.

63-year-old Richard Roper from Suffolk sent in his £30 fine carefully printed on two sheets of toilet paper after his bank told him it was a perfectly legal way to pay.

"My payment has been written on stationery which aptly reflects my feelings towards the system which I am unfortunately forced to support through my taxes," said Roper, who was forced to sit at the back of court as a resolution to the matter.

He added: "This is not a case of not wishing or refusing to pay but a case of the authorities refusing to accept my payment. What I did here was done in good humour."

Roper conceded that he may now be a "marked man" with traffic wardens, but admitted: "I have several cars so they won't find it easy to target me."

I wonder if they would accept it if it was used?
I gave up beer, it was the worst 15 minutes of my life.
