He notices that the Ectomobile is illegally parked and walks over to gawk at the odd vehicle.
As the Policeman approaches, a set of double antennae on the roof are automatically activated. They rotate and tilt to point at the Policeman. The Policeman is a little unnerved by the antennae and starts to walk around the car, but the antennae follow him with unerring accuracy.

As the Policeman withdraws his hand, the ticket heats up, bursts into flame and burns up.
He stares at the ashes for a moment then slowly backs away from the car.
