An Ontario driver has been charged by provincial police after a parrot was spotted loose inside the vehicle.
OPP located the vehicle on Perth Road 119 around 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 8, following reports of a large bird flying inside the car.
Officers found a large parrot on the driver’s shoulder.
The driver was charged with a section of the Highway Traffic Act that forbids crowding the driver’s seat.
The charge comes with a minimum fine of $110.
Provincial police are reminding drivers that distractions or impediments of any kind can shift focus from the road and increase the risk of a collision.
