Perhaps some people don’t know that not all outdoor ATMs are for drive-thru?
That may have been the case at a SkyTrain plaza last week, when a driver decided to “pull-up” to use the bank machine.
Metro Vancouver Transit Police fined a woman in Richmond, B.C., for driving onto a pedestrian only zone at the Richmond-Brighouse Station.
While patrolling Brighouse Station, officers saw this driver drive past the “Do Not Enter” signs and onto the sidewalk, so that she could use the ATM at the bank. This transaction netted her hundreds of dollars in fines and four points on her license. pic.twitter.com/EJHiKBrG4L

She drove past the “do not enter” signs and onto the sidewalk and proceeded to use the ATM there.
The driver was fined $200 and had 4 points taken off of her licence.
However, some reactions are suggesting that is simply not enough to deter this behaviour.
We need stupid tests for people like this. Seriously. Far too many who are just too stupid for a drivers license .
