Montreal Police Raking It In From Reserved Lane Scofflaws

From CJAD:

When you're sitting in traffic, don't those reserved bus lanes look so tempting?

Don't even think about it.

In the first half of this year, Montreal police handed out nearly 14,000 tickets to people driving along one of the city's forty kilometres of reserved lanes, and a police spokesman says they were never cracking down on that particular infraction; it's just what they got.

It's an average of 57 tickets a day, at $144 a pop.
