Car surfing in Gatineau nets 2 men hefty fines

Two men were fined $1,300 each after they were caught car surfing in the parking lot of a Gatineau marina.

Gatineau police say they issued several tickets related to the incident after they found a man car surfing in the parking lot of Marina Kitchisippi de Gatineau on Sanscartier Street around 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

The driver and the person surfing on the vehicle were fined $1,300 each, police said.

The driver also had his vehicle impounded and his driver’s licence was suspended for seven days.

Eight others who were watching the car surfing were each fined $270 for being in a city park past a certain hour.

Car surfing is where one person drives a car while another stands on the roof of the vehicle, trying to keep balance.
