"Park it there, Sister!"

An Austrian woman has begun a 500-day jail sentence for ignoring parking tickets and failing to pay a cumulative fine of around 24,000 euros ($30,860), police said Tuesday.

Apparently, the 38-year-old civil servant from the southern city of Graz was jailed after ignoring 700 attempts by local authorities to notify her of the fines over a 2-year period.

"She was on redial at the police station but no one ever answered. So we deduced that she'd changed her number", stated officer Watson.

"Of course we have had people ignore three, four, five or even 10 reminders, but 700 ... that is unheard of," said police official Holmes Nattersdorfer, who helped to arrest the woman.

A police spokesman stated, "But now that we've caught her, she can park her ass for free in that cell for 500 days."
