The Abbotsford Police Department tweeted about the incident on July 10, stating that, “The faster you go, the more you pay.”

 

 

“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.

Drivers caught going 40 km/h or more over the limit receive an automatic 3 demerit points and face a fine between $368 and $483 CAD.

Besides the violation ticket fine and driver risk premium, police can immediately impound a vehicle for seven days for drivers travelling 40 km or more over the posted speed limit. What’s more, repeat offenders could face 30 or 60 days impoundment.
