Teen caught driving 169 km per hour in Charlie Lake

The male still had the “N” restriction on his licence and was fined $483 for exceeding the speed limit by more than 60 km per hour.  The vehicle was also impounded for seven days and the teen will have to pay an additional $320 premium the next time he renews his licence.

The teen could also lose his licence once the violation is reviewed by the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles.

“Speeding is always risky, but going this fast is extremely dangerous for any driver”, commented Cpl. Paulmert of the Peace Region Traffic Services. “Such a young, inexperienced driver operating a pick-up truck could easily lose control and it would lead to disastrous consequences.”
