It’s a bird; it’s a pain…

PORT HOPE, Ont. — Attention drivers. If you get a ticket, keep your feelings — and your fingers — to yourself.

According to a recent report from the Canadian Press, an Ontario four-wheeler was pulled over for speeding on the 401 near this southern Ontario village on the weekend, and he was ticketed for traveling 35 klicks over the speed limit.

Then, when he was pulling away, he flipped Constable Bettina Schwarze the bird.

She pulled him over again and slapped him with another $110 ticket.

The offence? Making an improper hand signal.
