A 73-year-old man driving 180 km/h on the highway just west of North Battleford, Sask., has lost his license, had his vehicle impounded and faces a hefty fine.
Saturday afternoon, North Battleford RCMP received reports of a vehicle travelling east along Highway 16 at “a high rate of speed,” police said in a news release Monday.
An officer was able to locate the vehicle and using radar, clocked it at 180 km/h, RCMP said.
Following a traffic stop, the man, from Edmonton, was slapped with a $1,022 traffic ticket. He faces a three-day licence suspension in Saskatchewan. His vehicle has been impounded for seven days.
