74-year old man gets $199 ticket for talking on a phone while driving, says he doesn’t have a phone
When you get a $199 ticket for talking on your phone while driving, you probably wouldn’t be too happy. But you’d be outraged if... you didn’t even have a phone for starters. That’s exactly what happened on Friday, March 2nd, when 74-year old Canadian Laszlo Piszker was driving in the city of Winnipeg. At least, that’s Piszker’s side of the story - of police officers issuing a ticket only to fill their quota.

The elderly man even asked the police to look around in the car for a cell phone but the officers allegedly refused.


In some Canadian states, talking on your phone while driving is illegal and could lead up to a fine of as much as $500 in addition to demerit points.
