Motorcyclist nabbed for going 150 km/h in a 90 zone
March 28, 2012
Traffic officers driving an unmarked car nabbed a motorcyclist ripping down the Trans-Canada Highway 60 kilometres an hour over the posted limit.
The 37-year-old man visiting from North Vancouver was weaving his brand new Harley Davidson motorcycle in and out of traffic on the wet and slippery highway through View Royal. He passed the unmarked police car at 150 kilometres an hour in a 90 kilometre-an-hour zone, said Cpl. Ryan Bacica, spokesman for the region’s Integrated Road Safety Unit.
The driver was pulled over and given a $368 ticket for excessive speed, $109 ticket for unsafe lane change, and a $109 ticket for not producing his insurance information. The motorcycle will be impounded for seven days.
“This turned out to be an expensive trip to the island for this motorist,” Bacica said. “As a result of some poor driving behavior he is going to be out nearly $1,000 after all the traffic fines, impound fees, storage fees, and ferry fare to come back to Victoria to retrieve his motorcycle out of impound.”
