Ottawa police say they have begun handing out tickets and other fines to convoy participants in the city's downtown area, after nearly a week of honking that has residents frustrated.

30 traffic tickets were given in the Centretown, Sandy Hill, Gleve, and ByWard Market/Lowertown neighbourhoods, all close to the convoy which is mainly on Wellingston Street in front of Parliament Hill, reports Global News.

As per Global, the tickets handed out were:
- Eight charges for unnecessary noise (honking of horns);
- One charge for transporting dangerous goods (insecure fuel cars);
- One charge for an improper muffler;
- Four charges for disobeying traffic signs;
- Two charges for driving the wrong way on a one-way street;
- One charge for an unsafe lane change;
- One charge for distracted driving;
- One charge for running a stop sign;
- Six speeding tickets;
And five document offences.

On Sunday, police said they were avoiding "ticketing and towing vehicle so as not to instigate confrontations with demonstrators."

The ticketing, thus, marks a departure from that strategy for the Ottawa police.

Police also released a photo of a suspect who they say desecrated the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
