Who is going to collect the fine, Exhausted Police I guess
And cool in summer.

I don't have a modern enough car but (a) I think you can turn it off, (b) I believe that if you depress the clutch or put it into neutral then it doesn't stop the engine, and (c) it doesn't do it if the engine is cold or the battery is not fully charged.

I like the pun but the council will collect the fine though it might be issued by an exhausted policeman on behalf of the council. If the police do not get the money then it won't be high on their list of priorities.
