Officials in the village of West Jefferson, Ohio recently got a grammar lesson as the 12th Ohio District Court of Appeals tossed out a woman's parking ticket over a missing comma.

Officials in the village of West Jefferson, Ohio recently got a grammar lesson as the 12th Ohio District Court of Appeals tossed out a woman's parking ticket over a missing comma.

The case started in 2014 when Andrea Cammelleri was ticketed for parking her truck on a street for more than 24 hours.  However, she discovered the village miswrote the parking enforcement law so it applied to a "motor vehicle camper" and instead of a "motor vehicle, camper," etc.

The village maintained that the law's meaning was clear but Judge Robert Hendrickson sided with Cammelleri and said if the town wants the law to read differently, they need to add the missing comma.
