WINNIPEG – The Mounties continue to pull super-speeders off Manitoba’s long, straight highways.
Westman RCMP caught a 21-year-old visitor to Canada going 169 kilometres per hour on the Trans-Canada Highway west of Brandon on the September long weekend, a news release said. He was handed a $927 fine for his excessive speeding.
Westman RCMP ticketed a total of five people with driving more than 50 km/h over the speed limit from Aug. 29 to Sept. 1.
They also ticketed two for driving more than 40 km/h over the limit and 25 for driving more than 30 km/h over the limit.
A 27-year-old Rivers man allegedly damaged farmers’ fields when he tried to evade police. He’s being investigated for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, flight from a police officer and mischief.
