The VPD's Collision Investigation Unit nabbed an "N" driver going 142 km/h in a 50 km/h zone

The driver had their car impounded for seven days and was handed a $483 ticket

VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Another example of a careless driver was caught on the streets of Vancouver on Monday morning.

Members of the Vancouver Police Department’s Collision Investigation Unit nabbed an “N” driver going 142 km/h in a 50 km/h zone on West 16th Avenue in the area of Camosun Park and Queen Elizabeth Elementary School.


The driver had their car impounded for seven days and was handed a $483 ticket. This comes just a few days after a similar situation late last month, also in Vancouver. Again, a driver was caught speeding recklessly — this time, going 130 km/h around Granville Street and 49th Avenue.


Under new ICBC rules, implemented in June, tickets for things like excessive speed could impact a driver’s insurance rates as the province works toward a new model of rewarding good drivers and punishing bad drivers.

The revamped insurance model targets drivers who are caught with frequent or serious driving convictions within a three-year period starting on June 10th of this year. Those with a dicey driving record will eventually pay more for their Collision and Extended Third Party Liability coverage.
