DELTA (NEWS 1130) — Six speeders were taken off the road by police in Delta during a traffic blitz last week.
Police set up on Highway 17 on Thursday, and caught people going as fast as 158 kilometers per hour in an 80 kilometer zone.
Cris Leykauf with Delta Police says one of the cars taken off the road was a taxi with two passengers inside. The passengers had to transfer because their taxi cab was impounded.
There were a few other interesting stops in the blitz.
“They included two vehicles that were travelling approximately two car-lengths apart, and that was at over 150 kilometers per hour, and a driver with an interim driver’s license,” she says.
In another case, a driver was stopped that had an interlocking device on the ignition.
“That’s something where drivers who have been caught driving impaired, they potentially have to have that put on in order to continue driving,” she says.
In all but one of the excessive speed cases, Leykauf notes the drivers were not from Delta. She’s reminding drivers to slow it down when you travel through the community.
