Young driver calls 911 after getting a speeding ticket: OPP

A young man pulled over on the 401 west of Brockville needed a lecture in proper 911 use after he dialed the emergency line to dispute a traffic ticket.

OPP with the Leeds and the Thousand Islands detachment say the 19-year-old driver was handed a speeding ticket on Sunday afternoon.

From there, they say the driver promptly called 911 to complain.

That led to OPP paying him a second visit, where they addressed his concerns and educated him on proper 911 use: it's for emergencies only.
