3 vehicles in West Vancouver impounded in single night for excessive speeding

WATCH: West Vancouver police impounded no fewer than three vehicles early this morning for excessive speeding. Aaron McArthur reports.


Three vehicles were stopped and impounded in West Vancouver Monday night — all for excessive speeding.

West Vancouver police say all three vehicles were caught speeding on the Upper Levels Highway. It is unclear if they were travelling towards the Sea to Sky Highway or into North Vancouver.

Police say one of the drivers was travelling 187 km/h in a 90 km/h zone in frigid weather conditions.

Two of the vehicles were being driven by someone with only an ‘N’ designation, while the other driver had a similar impound about two years ago.
