A Langley teenager had his Lexus impounded after he was stopped driving at almost 200 km/h in Clinton, B.C., on Friday afternoon.
On July 25 at 2:50 p.m. an officer with the Clinton RCMP was doing radar checks on Highway 97 near 83 mile road, a stretch with a 100 km/h speed limit.
The officer saw a red vehicle passing other cars in the two northbound lanes, said Const. Kris Clark, with the Kelowna RCMP.
The officer turned on his lights and sirens and pulled over the Lexus.
A 19-year-old from Langley was given a violation ticket for excessive speed. The ticket carries a fine of $483 and a mandatory seven-day impoundment of the car involved.
The road is one where RCMP have seen excessive speeding in the past, said Clark.
This is the second incident in recent weeks of a Langley resident being caught speeding excessively outside of Langley.
On July 22, a young man was stopped while driving at 155 km/h in a 60 km/h zone in the middle of the night in Perth County, Ont. That driver was charged with racing a motor vehicle and had his rental car impounded.
