I’m all for catching bad guys and distracted drivers but this doesn’t seem fair. A driver in Regina pulled up to an intersection where he saw a homeless guy with one of those homemade signs, so he handed the guy three dollars. But in order to hand the guy the money the driver had to briefly undo his seatbelt. He was then pulled over and given a ticket for $175 for not wearing a seatbelt. The “homeless” guy was actually an undercover cop.
What? Can they do that?
Police in Regina claim it is part of a project at intersections to keep the town safe.
“Intersections are probably one of the most critical areas when it comes to accidents obviously, and our high-volume intersections are ones that we tend to target,” said Regina spokesperson Evan Bray. “So we will run random intersection projects throughout the city.”
