VICTORIA, British Columbia- A police chief in Canada gave one driver a reason not to throw cigarette butts from his auto.

Manak then pulled over the driver and confronted him with the ticket.

Victoria Police Chief Del Manak shared a photo of a $575 citation that he issued after watching a man flick a burning butt from his auto last week.

When asked why, the driver told Manak "I didn't want my vehicle to burn".

To which Manak responded "Then don't smoke in your auto", before writing the man a ticket for $575 (about $433 in American dollars).

The police crackdown on drivers saw Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Manitoba fine a 16-year-old driver a whopping $1,169 ($879 USD) for driving at 105mph.

When asked why he was speeding the teen said "Too many hot wings & needed the bathroom".

Another driver traveling south on Perimeter Highway Monday was fined $1,769, about $1,330 Dollars, after he was clocked in at 111 miles per hour.
