A licence to whine
A defiant Fred Jajczay vows to fight tickets for several driving-related offences, saying he has the legal right to drive - even though he sported a homemade driver's licence, self-styled insurance and a fake licence plate.

"It costs money and I'm tired of paying the government for anything and everything," he said, adding as a Canadian citizen he has the right to drive and travel freely.
