The driver was issued with a $368 fine for excessive speeding and had his vehicle impounded for seven days. Abbotsford police said his licence will also be reviewed by the superintendent of motor vehicles.

Excessive speeding also comes with three driver penalty points plus a driver risk premium, which translates to a minimum $384 hike on the driver’s insurance.
