Brickbat: No Good Deed

Police in Regina, Saskatchewan, have come up with a nifty way to raise money. They pose an undercover officer as a homeless person next to an intersection holding a sign. When drivers stopped at the intersection try to give him money, they have to take off their seat belts to reach across the seat. A few minutes later, another officer pulls the drivers over and hands each a $175 ticket for a seat belt violation.
