The pricey mistake took place on Highway 17 near Quadra St.in Saanich, British Columbia around 6.20pm on Friday.

Victoria Police Chief Del Manak tweeted a photo of the $575 ticket, saying it was "575 reasons to not throw your lit cigarette out the vehicle window in front of" Victoria police.

Canadian police are cracking down on drivers this month as officers hand out tickets with hefty fines to careless motorists.

"When asked why (he did it), driver replied, "I didn't want my auto to burn" as he pointed to his cup holder in console", the chief's post said. Actually, he gave him 575 reasons.
