Tale of an 'un-happy' happy face

Ever wonder if it's legal to do an old fashioned burnout on a public roadway?

Wonder no more, because the answer is NO, as an unidentified biker learned the hard way over the weekend.

Following the Falkland Stampede Parade Sunday the motorcyclist decided to draw a 'happy face' on Highway 97 in Falkland by burning a little rubber.

The image did not put a happy face on an RCMP traffic member's face who saw the stunting and conducted an investigation.

The driver provided sample which turned out to be under the legal limit.

He was, however, issued a ticket for the traffic offences.
