We’ve told you time and time again how seriously law enforcement in Canada takes speeding.
Apparently a young man in Saskatoon – which is a city straddling the South Saskatchewan River in Saskatchewan, Canada – didn’t see that post on this website.
Or maybe the lure of all those horses underneath the hood of his shiny black C6 coupe was just too much for him to resist.
The 29-year-old man became the latest victim of such strict adherence to the speed limit, and as a result, he will have to pay nearly $2,000 in fines and lost the services of his Corvette for a week as it was impounded by the Saskatoon Police traffic unit.
Of course, who could blame the cops for being upset with this Corvette driver, who was going more than twice the legal limit. He was clocked doing 216 kilometers per hour (or 134 mph), some 126 kmh over the limit of 90 kmh (or 55 mph).
To try to turn this into a teaching moment, Saskatoon Police posted a couple of photos online showing the actual traffic stop and the Corvette on the back of a rollback being hauled in to the impoundment lot, with the comments:

This 29-year old man was caught driving on Circle Dr near Lorne during the noon hour on Saturday at 216 km/h in the 90 zone. He was lucky enough not to kill anyone & ended up with almost $2,000 in fines & car jail for his ride (1 week impound at the owners expense). #SlowDownYXE pic.twitter.com/hS9wrrOW9g— SPS Traffic Unit (@SPSTraffic) April 13, 2019
