Yes, they’re just doing their jobs, but it still wouldn’t hurt erring on the side of understanding, especially when a live report for KTLA is being shot. However, for the LAPD, nobody’s above the law, even reporters and journalists.

Certainly, it’s not something that you see on a daily basis so when a live report for KTLA on the "best road trip cars" gets interrupted by an LAPD officer handing out parking tickets to all the parked cars like they were flyers for a weekend carnival, it’s certainly something worth watching and having a few laughs at. That’s the LAPD, folks! Y’all should know better than to mess with these officers-on-duty.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I wonder why does the Bentley is preparing for a brake system? Are they coming up with new model? Hmm. I can smell a successor for the Bentley Continental Supersports.

I would say that police is totally unprofessional he shouldn’t do that.. he could told about it after the live report.

There are no excuse with the LAPD, they are just doing what’s right and their job.

Well, I think the reporter should report himself for being guilty of multiple parking tickets. Yeah! I can’t imagine that, reporting himself for news.

Well there is no celebrity, politicians or even reporter to the LAPD. No one is above the law in LAPD.
