Canadian pedestrian fined for walking more than two abreast (Video)
Winnipeg News ^ | May 18, 2014

Posted on 05/20/2014 12:23:48 PM PDT by TheProducer

A man in Winnipeg was fined $113 for walking on the sidewalk in a group “more than two abreast.” The ticket was issued under Manitoba’s Highway Traffic Act which reads: Any pedestrian proceeding along a highway where no sidewalk is provided or where the sidewalk is not passable, shall walk as closely as is practicable…but persons walking on a roadway shall not walk more than two abreast.” Chris Herda, a friend of the man who received the ticket said, “I’ve walked past people four or five abreast. Why only give him a ticket?” “I hope everyone sees it,” said Herda. “This is a farce. That’s what it is.”

Perhaps the city needs more ‘revenue’?

Bicyclists love to ride two or more abreast on narrow mountain roads as it is their rightofway. Some people have special rights.

And I thought Minnesota was the place where absolutely nothing was allowed.

Hey, isn’t it a wild coincidence that you just now showed up and excerpt stuff from a single source?

That might almost lead folks to the conclusion that you were just using Free Republic as a hit farm.

Good thing we know better than that, huh?

Just curious——is “The Libertarian Republic” the only thing you read?

It’s same as with the building Inspector that brushes up on his code book and finds a clause to shut down a construction job, rather than say fix it and I’ll be back!

That’s why the BTK serial killer took a long break from his career Binding, Torturing and Killing women. He got enough pleasure tormenting people as a building code enforcer, he didn’t feel the need!

They should do this at our local malls where clans and full families walk en masse and slowly, such that it takes forever to pass them.

Aaaarrgghhhhh!

That was one of the things I used to get pissed enough to act on in high school i.e. kids walking down the hall towards me four, five, six abreast and expecting me to flatten out against the wall or something. I remember providing several of them with much ruder awakenings than any sort of a pedestrian traffic ticket for the practice.

Seriously.... trying to enter Walmart yesterday...

A family of 5 (at LEAST 1500 pounds between them) stood blocking the door between the basket area and the store proper, just laughing and cutting up.

A put up with this for several minutes, then loudly announced “Hey! you two-ton lard asses wanna get the fvck out of everyone’s way?” BTW, if you want to do something productive with your life while standing around, there is a good Gym next door!”

Cheers and applause from the other similarly blocked patrons was enough to shame the lard-asses into leaving.

They’re trying to initiate a reaction, daring people to say something about their rude behavior, so that they have an excuse (”trigger”) to attack.

Lying headline. They were walking in a way that was dangerous for them.

The same law should apply to aggressive bicyclists wearing speedos but not to kids.

Good, it’s quite annoying how some folks hog the entire sidewalk, strolling along at a snail’s pace, when you are trying to get somewhere.
