Speeders, be warned: They mean business up north.
We’ve told you before about Corvettes being impounded for excessive speeding in Canada.
Now comes word that the cops north of the border have apprehended two more rather impressive victims of this stringent anti-high-speed-driving policy.
Police in West Vancouver posted a photo of a 2015 Corvette Stingray coupe behind a 2018 McLaren 720S on the side of Highway 1, with lights flashing on a patrol vehicle next to them.
The photo would likely have been a blur if it had been taken during the actual crime. The two cars were clocked doing nearly double the legal limit – a whopping 150 km/h in an 80 km/h zone shortly after midnight Wednesday near the Mountain Highway exit in North Vancouver.
Actually, 150 km/h isn’t as bad as it sounds – that translates into just 93 mph in American terms.
“West Van Dispatch, I’ll need two hooks and a taxi here please!” the WVPD wrote, hashtagging “excessive speed” and “not a race track.”
Not only will the two drivers have to pay a fine, they will also lose their cars for seven days, impounded in a North Vancouver impound lot. The drivers – a 21-year-old Burnaby man and a 25-year-old Richmond man – received tickets for speeding, with fines possible ranging from $368 to $483. They’ll also get three demerit points and face having to pay a driver risk premium to ICBC.
