VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - From fines and points on your license to impounding your vehicle. Stiff new penalties are coming for speed demons.
Getting caught speeding 40 kilometers over the speed limit is about to get a lot more costly in B.C..
Get caught once and your car will be seized for a week. Get caught again and they will impound your car for a month and a third offence will cause you to lose your car for two months.
The new rules are making drivers consider their ways. One woman says "I think it's a good idea because people will slow down in general. I am one of those people who drive over the speed limit. I think that will never change because it is one of those things where you don't really realize your are doing it. You can go 20 or 30 over the limit and then you realize your speeding and you slow down"
You have a couple of weeks to let it all sink in. The new laws come into effect on September 20th
