Read the following scenario and answer questions 28 - 31.
In an effort to cut down on traffic and air pollution in the center of town, an ordinance is enacted and signed by the mayor that forbids certain size trucks from entering the city limts, except delivery trucks which have either to drop off or pick up goods or other materials from local businesses or residences. To enter the city, delivery vehicles must first obtain a special permit from the office of licenses and permits and display the permit on the front windshield. The ordinance authorizes the police to ticket any truck in the city not displaying a permit.
On May 2nd, Officer Brown saw a truck go by him in the town without a permit displayed. He pulled the truck over and questioned the driver. The driver said he was from out-of-town and was not aware of the ordinance. Officer Brown gave the driver a warning and told him to either drive out of the city or, if he was making a delivery, to go to the office of license and permits to get a permit. The driver was compliant and drove out of the town. On May 10th, Officer Brown saw the same truck and driver in the town, again without the required permit. The driver apologized and said he did not know he was in the city limits. Officer Brown ticketed the driver.
The driver appealed his ticket and a hearing was held in the city on May 28th. The judge was not sympathetic to the driver's excuse, as there was a sign giving notice of the city limit just down the street that the driver had passed when entering the city limits. When Officer Brown was leaving the courthouse, he noticed the driver had parked his truck in a lot down the street. Officer Brown was surprised to see that the truck failed to display the required permit. Officer Brown put a ticket on the front windshield of the truck and went about his day.
Why did Officer Brown ticket the driver the first time?
a. The driver ignored the warning that was given the first time.
b. The driver did not have the required permit.
c. The officer wanted to teach the driver a lesson.
d. The driver parked his vehicle outside the courthouse without the required permit.
