Car trickery.

There has been a car parked in front of my office building for a while now - I'd estimate, oh, a good 2 hours, given that I've seen it during two separate jaunts downstairs. This is somewhat significant only because there is no parking on my block. The only thing permitted is loading and unloading by commercial traffic.

It has its hood opened, and its warning lights blinking. A look at what has been revealed by the open hood shows a hand-written sign that says "Waiting for a jump."

There is no one in the car, nor standing by it.

I'm finding this rather... odd.

If your battery was dead, thus necessitating said jump, would your warning blinkers be working? I suppose there is some juice remaining in the battery, but... for this long?

I wonder if this is just some grand ploy to park in the restricted area without getting towed or ticketed.

If so, it's worked so far.
