We all know how much Canadians love their Tim Hortons coffee, but customers in Fredericton, N.B., are running into trouble with the law just to get it.

Police are saying customers at two different Timmies locations are wreaking “havoc” in the city because congestion at the drive-thrus is building up and spilling into the main streets, creating massive traffic problems. Authorities have since announced that, due to an increasing number of complaints, they will be “conducting focused enforcement on Canada and Regent Streets in an effort to curb this behaviour.”

Because no crime is more urgent at the moment, apparently.

Attention motorists!Over the past several weeks (and longer really), we have had an increasing number of complaints…

Even though the Facebook post includes a litany of possible fines that could result in illegally queing up at the drive-thru, most people don’t seem deterred.

After all, these people are apparently ready to endanger the lives of others just to get their precious double-double.

Comment

Some people actually believe the city should change to accommodate the drive-thru.

Comment

Others blamed the Tim Hortons location itself.

We hope, for the city’s sake, that this problem will finally be resolved though, because it’s been going on since 2011.

Actually, it seems to be a problem all over the country:

Good luck, Fredericton Police. You’re basically fighting the battle for Canada.
