Norway - Parking wiped out bank account

Some Norwegians were charged between $37,000 and $148,000 for parking in a municipal spots in the central Norwegian city of Trondheim last week.

At least 26 motorists were left baffled and broke when they used their bank debit cards to pay for the street parking.

Well, that was not the usual rate of parking though. It was all because of a computer glitch. The machine dispensing windshield parking permits multiplied the amount of time they bought by 10,000, and automatically deducted it from their bank accounts. (abc)

They should be pretty rich people to keep that much of money in their banks and that too accessible to debit cards!
