Nonne hic parco

From Yahoo news (I refuse to include the exclamation mark.  If they want a logo, let them buy an advert):
Police in Sicily issued a whopping 32,000 euros ($44,500) fine for an illegally parked car after totting up 2,000 years of interest by mistake, Italy's Repubblica newspaper said Wednesday. The interest due was calculated from the year 208 A.D. after a policeman dated the fine back to the year 208 instead of 2008.
It seems to me that the lady in question should have had the ticket revoked on the grounds that after 1803 years parked in the same spot without previous fines she's established an easement.
