Ticket diplomacy

Iltalehti reports that Russia had been given the biggest number of parking tickets in Helsinki with 154. South Korea came second with 54 tickets. Russia did not pay a single ticket in 2009, South Korea paid one. However, South Korea greatly exceeds Russia in the amount of tickets per diplomat; Russia got only about 3 three per diplomat, while South Korea got nine.

The director of parking control in Helsinki Marjo Jumpponen says:
In my opinion it's immoral not to pay parking fines. That gives a bad reputation to the whole country, while they should show an example to others.
I'm happy to be back in the university after more than two years.
