Chicago loves its hot dogs, unless of course they're illegally parked. Then they're getting a ticket just like every other fast food-shaped vehicle breaking the law.

On Thursday, the Wienermobile was caught in a no-parking zone on Michigan Avenue and promptly ticketed by one of Chicago's finest. The 27-foot-long, iconic frank-on-wheels' driver, however, returned to the vehicle just in time to save it from the city's tow truck.

Sydney Lindner, a spokesperson for Kraft, told the Associated Press, illegal parking is against company policy, "even if you're driving a company vehicle that's shaped like a giant hot dog."

It's too bad all the other weenies on the road don't follow proper driving etiquette.
