MINI owners are known for making parking spaces out of some of the most unusual and confined spaces. Word of caution: Do not try parking your MINI on the side of a building – you WILL receive a ticket.
Granted, most people have no intentions of parking their MINI on the side of a building, because, how could you? A Houston-based marketing firm that works closely with nearby MINI dealerships devised a plan where they would mount a MINI Cooper on the side of their building, as a fun bit of promotion for their client. The vehicle-cum-billboard is composed of a lightweight, fiberglass shell, making it possible to pin to the side of a building.
Unfortunately, the City of Houston did not find the billboard amusing. The MINI was ordered to be removed, citing a lack of permission and potential threat to pedestrians. Ticket read: Remove car from building front…Do this immediately!
Remember folks. Be sure to get permission if you wish to pin a vehicle to the side of a building.
