Laszlo Piszker was driving home Friday afternoon with his wife Margaret after lunch when they were stopped by police at Portage Avenue, east of Moray Street. Piszker says officers accused him of talking on his cell phone but he told them repeatedly he has never had a cell phone..
Piszker told Global news he's convinced he is part of the police service's traffic ticket quota..
The couple complained the officers refused to listen and became aggressive when Laszlo tried to refuse the ticket and Margaret tried to get out of the car.
The fine for talking or texting on a cell phone while driving is $199.80.. Winnipeg Police are not commenting about the story..
