Singing while driving is not allowed in Montreal

Blame C & C Music Factory’s 1990s infectious club hit, “Everybody Dance Now,” for getting a Canadian man in trouble for … here it comes … singing in his car!

Was it his horrible voice or screaming that caught the attention of the police? Perhaps it was both!

While belting out the popular cheerleading tune, Taoufik Moalla heard police sirens behind him. When he pulled over the officer asked if he had screamed to which Moalla replied, “No, I was just singing.”

After reviewing his license and registration, cops returned with a $149 ticket for screaming in public which violates Montreal, Quebec, Canada’s bylaws of upsetting the “peace and tranquility.”

While Moalla was shocked and later shared the story with his wife. She was not surprised that his vocals nabbed him a ticket, and said she would have given him a $300 fine for his singing.
