Montreal Cyclist Gets 651$ Ticket

He had been given a 41$ ticket for running a stop sign and decided he would warn cyclists of the police operation. All this week the police have had operations to try to curb the outrageous behavior of a lot of Montreal cyclists.

"...it's not interfering with their work because their work, the goal of their work, is not just giving tickets,"

Actually, a policeman's job is to convict you with a crime...pretty much their only job. And now this guy clearly understands that they're not his friend.

The ticket for running the red, fine.

The ticket for warning others...there's no way that sticks.
