[PIC] 1966 Corvette Impounded in Canada for Excessive Speeding


Don’t say you weren’t warned.

We’ve told you in the past about how serious Canada is about enforcing speed limits on its highways.

Apparently the owner of this 1966 Corvette restomod didn’t get the memo.

The driver zoomed past a police car on Highway 17 in Vancouver recently, doing 40.4 mph over the limit.

Whoops!

For his transgression, the driver received a $483 fine, but worse yet, his Corvette was impounded for seven days!


Delta Police posted a photo of the customized Corvette on the back of a tow truck, and a tweet storm ensued, with many suggesting that the punishment wasn’t sufficient.

“The fine for that kind of excessive speed needs to be at least ten times what it is now,” tweeted one.

“$483 isn’t even pocket change for people who can afford luxury cars like this,” tweeted another.

Of course, helping to balance those harsh critics was this tweet:

“Speed Limits need to be higher :)”

  1. As one teeter mentioned, the impound fees will run into the thousands! Another was right when he tweeted, “To be fair when you are driving that fast it’s hard to read the speed limit signs.” Safety first!

  2. I guess if he had been excessively Speeding at 90 kilometers over posted speed limit in a Prius you would only get a slap on the back of your hand❓ Pleeeeease, what you are driving should NOT have anything to do with it❗️End of story!

  4. Given Canada’s sissy speed limits, I doubt that was a white knuckle drive…’vette was probably still in 2nd gear!

  5. @Kenneth Gutwein I don’t see anywhere in the story where there’s even a penumbra of an indication that the enforcement was related to the type of vehicle. It’s simply a very matter-of-fact account of the violation and that he was fined and his vehicle was impounded. What leads you to conclude that a driver in a different type of vehicle would be treated differently for the same violation?

  6. Like this is all Vancouver police have to be concerned with.
    PC Canada has been going to hell for three decades now…
