Traffic Pirates

Double yellow lines? Arrrrrr.

A more honest breed of eye-patch wearing, crutch-using traffic warden. Not intent on keeping the roads clear. Not providing an essential public service. Just plundering.

They arrive on scull and crossbones scooters, with swords in hand, parrots on shoulder.

Ignore their scrolled ticket at your peril - if you haven't coughed up your loot in an hour, they'll wheel out the big guns...

       Why should I cough up a musical instrument? I don't understand. By the way, have you just received a parking ticket, Fishrat?

       No I haven't. And I think you're deliberately misunderstanding me. Let someone else annotate now.

       Have a crap.

       However, would the traffic wardens not be the Coastguard, navy or Customs?   

       I imagine a traffic pirate ship being a car full of traffic pirates pillaging and plundering other cars.

       NYC sherriffs are actually unpaid bounty hunters, who make their money towing the cars or traffic violations scofflaws. Kinda what you had in mind, I'm thinking.

       How true.   

       a)We stoles yer car whiles ye weren't looking, Arrrh!
b)Find ye the sign with the right phone number on it with haste, ya landlubber, the clock is tickin'.
c)Listens to me closely, landlubber, go 40 blocks towards the rising sun, 20 blocks towards the ocean, and 4 blocks back towards the tall buildin's ta find me stockade. And no cryin' about how far it is. A bit o' walkin' 'll do's ya good.
d)Now pays me my ransom before sundown or the ransom doubles. Arrrh!
