Nowhere or Somewhere
We have all seen a version of this scene either alongside the freeway, a roadway or occasionally like this, on a city street. If a vehicle appears discarded or does not run it is then ticketed and the windshield or back windows are tagged with large painted numbers. This indicates to police authorities that proper legal procedures are underway for this automobile to be towed away for repairs or impounded because it has now been abandoned. This particular camper truck is owned by a British Columbian resident who usually spends most of his "free" time in the Birch Bay area.
It appears that this owner had a scheduled court date in The Peace Arch City one particular morning. He parked on the street confidant that he would be let off from the charges or released on bail. As fate intervened he was immediately sent to jail and his truck was left on the street. Once the three day parking limit past the impounding procedure began. When it was learned the owner was in jail the system intervened and the citing officer conferred with Chief Haslip. Both men decided that leniency was in order and arranged to store the truck "out back" until the jail time was over.
When we reach out and embrace our neighbors we see pictures that enhance everyday life in our own international community.
