What’s the point of having a nice car if you can’t even drive it? On Thursday, July 4th, a Traffic Enforcement Unit officer with the Abbotsford Police Department clocked an Audi A3 travelling 107 km/h above the speed limit on Highway 11 at Clayburn Road.
The driver, an 18-year-old “N” driver, has been charged with excessive speeding after being caught driving 187 km/h.

There was also a 17-year-old passenger in the car, which was then towed and impounded for 7 days.
Likewise, the driver’s license will be reviewed by the Superintendent of the Motor Vehicle Branch.
Since the male driver was caught going 40 km/h over the limit, he’ll receive an automatic 3 demerit points and face a fine between $368- $483.
“You may think you’re in control at these high speeds, but should you need to take evasive action, or react to another driver, you may find yourself unable to respond effectively. The results can be deadly”, states the AbbyPD Traffic Enforcement Unit’s Sgt. Desi Sansalone.
The Abbotsford Police Department is once again reminding drivers to slow down and keep the roads safe for everyone.
