Detroit Man Ticketed for Running Vehicle in Driveway Gets Day in Court, and Loses [VIDEO]

Remember Nicholas Taylor, the Roseville man who sparked a statewide debate after he was ticketed for warming up his car in his driveway?

Taylor got his day in court (video below), and after arguments were presented by both sides, a judge upheld the ticket issued by Roseville police, saying that Mr. Taylor’s running vehicle was clearly accessible to the public. Taylor was then ordered to pay the $128 fine.

The takeaway here is don’t leave an unattended, unlocked vehicle running anywhere — including your own driveway — because it could easily be stolen or driven away without your knowledge. Although there is no state law against doing so, cities and municipalities can create ordinances that make it illegal withing their jurisdictions.
