Parking ticket? Try yoga

Drivers annoyed by parking tickets in Cambridge, Massachusetts, are getting some calming advice from city officials - try yoga.

The city's parking tickets include instructions on the reverse on how to bend into some simple yoga positions. The city, which is home to Harvard and MIT, printed 40,000 of the tickets as part of a public art project by artist-in-residence Daniel Peltz.

Cambridge parking enforcement officers hand out about 340,000 tickets per year. Susan Clippinger, the city's transportation chief, tells the Boston Herald the purpose of the tickets is to "debunk the idea that all parking tickets are a hostile action."

Not everyone is buying it. Cambridge resident Hyunho Noh said "it's not working" as he showed up to pay a $25 ticket.
