VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Slow down, or you’re in for a hefty ticket and you might lose your ride too.
That coming from several RCMP detachments in the Lower Mainland, after they were able to nab several speeding drivers.
Coquitlam RCMP took to Twitter, sharing an image of a vehicle being towed away, and telling drivers “Driving like your grandma doesn’t usually mean doing 125km/hr in a 70 km/hr zone”.
In that case, the driver has borrowed their grandmother’s car and was speeding 125 kilometers an hour in a 70 kilometer an hour zone on the Mary Hill Bypass.
RCMP warned drivers to slow down, adding “Let’s hope grandma has a second car since this one is getting impounded.”
Speeding drivers were also clocked in Delta.
Delta Police pulled over three excessive speeders, reminding drivers that “just because the roads are actually dry isn’t a good excuse to go nuts out there”.
Most of Delta Police’s traffic vehicles are unmarked and use laser units to measure the speed of vehicles.
We’ve pulled over 3 excessive speeders already today. Just because the roads are actually dry isn’t a good excuse to go nuts out there. And by the way – most of our Traffic vehicles are unmarked. And have laser units to measure speed of vehicles up ahead….or behind. https://t.co/p48cT2X1qH

A motorcyclist was also nabbed in Delta, going 176 kilometers an hour on Highway 99.
According to a tweet from the Delta Police Traffic Unit, the motorcyclist said he was unaware of just how fast he was going.
That person was also slapped with an expensive ticket, according to a tweet from the Traffic Unit.
“$483 ticket may-or may not-enlighten him. When his insurance goes up he’ll get another reminder.”
