MONTREAL — Montreal Alouettes’ player Chad Johnson is having some trouble with parking tickets after his move to Montreal.

Johnson, formerly known as Chad Ochocinco, is a former NFL star who recently signed a two-year deal to play for the Montreal Alouettes in April.

Once dubbed the “most influential athlete in social media” by CNBC, the 36-year-old took to Twitter on Tuesday to share his displeasure with unilingual parking signs in his new hometown.

Tweeting to Montreal mayor Denis Coderre, the wide receiver confessed that he’s been hit with 15 parking tickets since he arrived in the city.

The reason? Johnson said he can’t understand the street signs.

He also noted that he only seems to get them outside Stogies, McDonald’s and Starbucks.

After tweeting back “Wanna talk Ocho?,” Coderre later agreed to meet with Johnson and school him in the nuances of Montreal’s parking signs.
