Driver’s ticket for the birds?

A Perth County driver in  has been charged under a rarely used section of Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act.

Provincial police were contacted Thursday after a woman was spotted driving with a large parrot on her shoulder.

She was stopped near Stratford and charged with travelling with a large, unrestrained parrot in her car — which falls under a law that forbids crowding the driver’s seat.

The distracted-driving-related charge comes with a minimum fine of 110 dollars.
