NEW YORK, Feb. 9 (UPI) -- A New York man said his parked Jeep was ticketed despite a note explaining the vehicle was infested by bedbugs.

The man, who asked not to be named, said his Jeep was left parked on Pacific Street in the Boerum Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn with a note asking ticket agents not to impose fines because the vehicle was infested with bedbugs, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

"We wanted to see if we had them in the house by not using the car at all for two weeks," the owner said. "They still ticketed us, though."
