The driver's truck got broken down around 12 midnight, and he waited till the next morning to get a fitter to fix it. The driver called the fitter early morning and while they were fixing the vehicle a police officer came around and asked them to quickly fix the truck so as not to cause congestion.
The vehicle was fixed and as the driver was about to leave, another police officer came on the scene and told the driver not to move the truck because he had already called a towing car to come and tow the truck. He then gave a ticket to driver to report to court. The driver called GSA staff who, speaking to the Officer was told that the driver had to pay something since the towing car has already moved.
