Speeder claims he was late for school: Saskatoon police
A driver learned the hard way it is better to be late for school than to speed.
The speed limit is 100 km/h.
He told police that he was late for school before officers handed him a $966 ticket.
The van, which belongs to his parents, was impounded.
Police said he was not the only excessive speeder caught on Monday.
During the afternoon, officers said they clocked a motorcycle doing 112 km/h on Spadina Crescent. The speed limit is 50 km/h.
The motorcyclist was given an $820 ticket and had his motorcycle impounded for seven days.
Further north of Saskatoon, CTSS members from Prince Albert police said they caught a car on radar doing 179 km/h on Highway 11 near Macdowall where the speed limit is 110 km/h.
The driver was issued a ticket for $1,011 and the vehicle impounded for seven days.
