Parking vigilantes?

I’ve been growing more and more annoyed with inconsiderate people and their parking habits — in particular, those who park in fire lanes (usually right in front of a business’ main entrance) or in handicapped spots (without, of course, a handicapped plate or placard). With that in mind, I’ve come up with an idea.

If you happen to find a car parked illegally in a handicapped spot, it shall be perfectly legal for you to rectify the situation by “handicapping” said car. Likewise, if it is in a fire lane, the car can be set on fire.

For repeat offenses, the same penalty can be applied to the drivers.

As Robert Heinlein once wrote, an armed society is a polite society.
