Winnipeg police catch teen speedster; give him $992 ticket
A young man is nearly $1,000 poorer after being caught going more than 70 km/h over the speed limit on a slippery morning.
Winnipeg police said they caught the man, 18, going a whopping 152 km/h on Lagimodiere Boulevard and Fermor Avenue early Friday morning, which has an 80 km/h limit.
Temperatures on Friday morning still hovered in the -30 C range in the city after a week of bone-chilling, nearly record-breaking temperatures, leaving streets icy and snow-packed.
Police said the man now has to deal with a $992 ticket and his licence will go under review with Manitoba Public Insurance.
Police are reminding Winnipeggers to slow down and drive to conditions.
