    CCTV footage captured a motorcyclist driving down an escalator in a Surrey mall on Feb. 20, 2015. (Live Leak/ YouTube)

    The registered owner of a motorbike that was caught on YouTube speeding through the streets of Surrey, B.C. before heading inside a mall and riding across a pedestrian overpass has been served with hefty fines totaling around $13,500.

    Surrey RCMP say the multiple violations the owner was ticketed for included 58 traffic infractions.

    The motorbike involved has also been seized, pending a civil forfeiture hearing.

    "While we were unable to positively identify the driver of the motorcycle, we are still able to hold the registered owner to account in this instance," Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann said in a statement Tuesday.

    The video, released by Live Leak and uploaded to YouTube on March 13, cut between police helicopter and cruiser footage and surveillance footage from inside the Guildford mall.

    It shows several people moving out of the way of the motorcycle as it plunges down an escalator and through a set of sliding doors. Security guards can be seen running in pursuit.

    Helicopter footage shows the motorcyclist leaving the mall and riding across an overpass, as two pedestrians jump out the way.

    The video ends with a shot of the motorcycle, which bears stickers supporting the Hells Angels.

    The rider's face has been blurred in the video footage.

    At the time the video surfaced, police confirmed that it had been created by an investigator and said they were looking into how it became public.

    They really went to town with the traffic fines. I wonder how many will actually stick.

    I would like to know how they found the registered owner. I had read that it was a stolen plate on the bike.

    One would assume that if a vehicle is reported stolen, this would negate the liability of the owner from anything the operator does illegally.

    I can say that after years of my dad hanging out with some HA members, there is the fact that a members bike is considered club property, free to use by any other member. One could also assume that the sticker on the side of that POS indicates this is affiliated with the HA. This leads me to believe that the owner or a close "affiliate" operated the bike.

    IMO, he should lose the bike, and pay the fines. Ram it up his ass.

    Reading through some ICBC documents it seems to appear that if the driver does not have the consent of the owner to operate the vehicle, the owner is not liable.. Of course you did not give consent if it was stolen... Did you leave the keys in it or was it a locked vehicle and hotwired?

    the guy who was hit.

    i reported the vehicle stolen sometime that morning after calling tow yards to make sure it wasnt there. then someone told me all tows are reported to local rcmp, so called them and... it was stolen.

    icbc didnt want to pay him because it was a stolen vehicle that hit him. so he was trying to sue my insurance policy.

    bottom line... make sure your ininsured/underinsured policy is maxed out.
