High speed gets driver court date in hurry

Boyle, AB – A high-speed driver on Highway 63 is now headed for court after his vehicle was measured travelling at 192 km/h during the long weekend.

Around 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, a southbound BMW south of Wandering River, Alta., was observed by a member of the RCMP-Alberta Sheriffs Boyle Integrated Traffic Unit travelling at a high rate of speed. Radar confirmed the vehicle was being driven at 192 km/h in a posted 110 km/h zone.

A 36-year-old Fort McMurray man was issued a summons for the charge of speeding under Sec. 115(2)(p) of the Traffic Safety Act and is to attend court in Boyle Nov. 22.

Speeding at a rate more than 50 km/h over the speed limit comes with an automatic court date.

Convictions can come with a fine up to $2,300 and a driving suspension for as long as 90 days.

Speed greatly reduces a driver’s stopping distance and exponentially increases one’s risk of injury.

Integrated Traffic Units consist of RCMP Traffic Services members and Sheriff Highway Patrol officers working together in a collaborative effort to deliver effective and efficient traffic safety services to Albertans, with a focus on identified enforcement priorities.
