A driver who said he was trying to “knock the rust off the brake rotors” is facing a number of charges, say Corman Park police.
Police said officers were completing community patrols on Wednesday afternoon when they spotted a speeding vehicle heading west on Grasswood Road just south of Saskatoon.
Radar clocked the car going 159 km/h, police said. The speed limit on that stretch of road is 80 km/h.
Police said the driver showed signs of impairment and a breath test returned a “WRN” signal.
That indicates the driver was over the provincial legal limit, police said.
The driver is facing a $1,170 speeding ticket and a $360 alcohol ticket.
The car was impounded for seven days and the driver was handed a three-day licence suspension, police added.
