A blown up pink flamingo on the roof of a vehicle travelling in Saanich got the attention of officers on patrol earlier this week.
The car was pulled over after police discovered the driver and passenger were using their arms to hold the flamingo in place.
Your arms out the window, holding onto something on the roof, are not considered proper “tie downs”… ? With the nice weather finally here please make sure you properly secure your cargo if you’re headed to the beach #yyjtraffic #Saanich #yyj pic.twitter.com/lbLJdKV8Qs

The pair were pulled over on McKenzie Avenue.
Police issued a warning and the driver had the inflated flamingo properly tied down or stowed before hitting the road again.
