Virgina Man Saves Geese, Gets Ticket

FAIRFAX, Va. – He thought he was helping when he stopped traffic to save a group of geese about to cross a busy road, but it turns out he was given a ticket.

Joe Vamosi was in Fairfax County court on Monday fighting the jaywalking citation.

It all took place on June 18. Vamosi saw the geese about to cross the Fairfax County Parkway. He pulled over his car and walked out into traffic to stop other vehicles.

The geese were able to cross, but a police officer who was watching gave Vamosi a ticket.

In court, the officer told the judge that Vamosi nearly caused a pile up when he stopped traffic.

The judge said he understood why Vamosi was concerned, but was also well aware of the danger that was caused through his actions.

The judge told Vamosi that he likely broke the law, and then decided to dismiss the case if their were no other citations issued against Vamosi over the course of the next six months.

When asked if he would do it again, Joe (and his wife) said, “Absolutely!”

Just another example of “no good deed goes unpunished!”, but good job and good for you that you would do it again… Ask Marion/JOMP
