A pregnant woman who was left to walk in the cold after her car was towed says the officer could have treated her more humanely, in an incident being investigated by Quebec provincial police.
Laura Cerminara, who's 34 weeks pregnant, told CBC News she was on her way to work in St-Lambert on Montreal's South Shore on Tuesday morning when she was pulled over by police on the Jacques-Cartier Bridge.
'I said, "I have to go to work, and I'm pregnant and it's freezing cold out today."'

"He came over and said, 'You have unpaid fines,' and I said, 'I don't know what you're talking about.'"
Cerminara said she and her husband purchased the car in August, and it's under his name. She had assumed the registration fees were paid for a full year.
But police told Cerminara that her registration payment was six weeks overdue.
