Sleuthing and Stereotyping

Propped up on someone's window in Tomigaya: "As this is in front of a parking space any illegally parked cars will be reported to the police."

The mix of kanji and katakana (as opposed to hiragana) denotes an older person, as does the old-ish wooden board and the penmanship. The pink hanky on the seat of the scooter narrows it down to old lady. I apologize if you are young and male with an anachronistic streak.
