It’s not often that a motorist finds themselves on the receiving end of a traffic ticket from the city’s top cop, but that’s just what happened on Thursday in Saanich, B.C.
Victoria police Chief Del Manak was actually in a neighbouring jurisdiction when the encounter happened just after 2 p.m. on Blanchard Street.

Manak posted a photo to Twitter of the ticket he wrote after a motorcyclist lost control due to an alleged stint of dangerous driving.
“Please slow down. MC in front of me speeding and cutting in/out of traffic. Lost control at curve, went onto grass median & wiped out,” wrote Manak.
“Luckily, he wasn’t injured other than his pride.”
The rider ended up with a $196 ticket, and his bike was towed.
