An Italian woman is recovering this week after a typo on a recent parking ticket resulted in a trip to the hospital.  According to Italy’s “La Republica” newspaper, the woman suffered a dizzy spell when she saw she was being fined 32-thousand euros, or about 44-thousand-500 dollars.  To make matters worse, she was accused of parking illegally for more than 18-hundred years.  Turns out the police officer entering the data dated the fine back to the year 208 instead of 2008.  The authorities acknowledged the mistake and the woman’s husband forked over the 102 euros she actually owed.
