Not to mention, the incident took place just as children were leaving school, making this situation even more dangerous.

Police gave the Abbotsford driver a $483 ticket and impounded the vehicle for seven days.

According to ICBC, 7,900 drivers were ticketed for speeding in school and playground zones across BC in 2017.

ICBC is asking drivers to give themselves extra travel time so they aren’t rushing and more likely to ­speed. Drivers should be completely focused on the road and be watching for children, especially in or around school zones.
