A Winnipeg driver is upset over receiving two speeding tickets she believes were issued at same exact same time and location.
Christine Ibalio said her first ticket was issued after she was pulled over by and police officer on Sept. 9 at 9:02 a.m.
The stop happened in the school zone on Panet Road near Munroe Avenue. She was clocked at 43 km/h in a 30 km/h zone.
About a week later, she received a photo radar ticket in the mail which appears to have been taken just metres away from where she was pulled over.
This one clocked Ibalio at 51 km/h at 9:05 a.m. on Sept. 9.
Ibalio said she feels like she's being punished twice for the same offence, which she thinks is not fair.
Sgt. Rob Riffel with the Winnipeg Police said the traffic unit and the company hired to provide photo radar services do not give whereabouts to each other. But traditional patrol officers will typically move to another location if they see a photo radar vehicle is nearby an enforcement area, he said.
Ibalio plans to fight one of the tickets, but also plans to pay more attention to road signs while driving.
