This is another reminder for motorists to slow down. West Vancouver Police have impounded a group of five motorcycles after they were caught travelling at a speed of 135 km/h in a posted 80 km/h zone.
The motorcycles were caught on April 28th, 2019 in the 7600 block of Hwy. 99, just North of Horseshoe Bay. A WVPD Traffic Section officer observed a group of motorcycles travelling Southbound at a high rate of speed.
