Some towns issue speeding tickets. Others towns issue parking tickets. In New Canaan, Connecticut they issue tickets for landing your helicopter in your backyard.
According to the Stamford Advocate, John Kjekstad, landed a chopper at home last Thursday because he did not want to deal with the traffic on the Merritt Parkway:
Kjekstad, who runs two helicopter and airplane charter companies, had planned to land his chopper at Teterboro Airport in New Jersey and drive home to New Canaan. On his flight to Teterboro, Kjekstad told police he saw bumper-to-bumper traffic on the Merritt and chose to fly directly home instead.
In addition to the helicopter, Kjekstad also owns four Gulf Stream Jets that cost about $8 million each. I'm sure the $75 ticket will stop him from landing his helicopter in his yard again.
In Kjekstad's defense, traffic on the Merritt Parkway does suck.
