PORT HOPE, Ont. — An Ontario driver has learned a hard lesson about respecting authority.
He was pulled over for speeding on Sunday on Highway 401 near Port Hope, Ont., after being tracked by a police helicopter.
Police say the driver was stopped and ticketed for travelling 35 kilometres over the posted speed limit.
After he received the ticket and began to pull away, the driver raised his hand and flashed an obscene gesture toward provincial police Const. Bettina Schwarze.
She pulled the unidentified man over again and promptly gave him a $110 ticket.
The offence? Making an improper hand signal.
