Fact or Fiction: Cop duped by fake auto?


The auto looked real enough that at least one police officer drove by to write a ticket for illegal parking.

A Canadian artist had a few hours to spare after Monday's snow storm, so instead of cozying up inside, he made a decision to sculpt a auto out of snow and wait to see what happened.

Instead, he left a ticket letting the artist know he made his night. It's illegal to park on the street during snow removal, which is probably why the police officers showed up to check out the situation. That's how that saying goes, right?

But after investigation the officer found he had been duped by Laprise's design.

An artist in Canada fooled police when he carved a realistic life-sized vehicle made of snow at a non-parking zone.

A Canadian artist chose to make light of a cold situation in the country when he played a trick on snow removers and received the attention of police. "So I made a decision to do something out of the mountain of snow, to do a little joke to the snow guys, and have fun sculpting a vehicle".

Laprise tells Buzzfeed Canada: "I did the vehicle to have fun expressing my creativity on that lovely day", he said.
