Police impounded a car for excessive speeding on Friday afternoon from a stretch of highway that is no stranger to this dangerous behaviour.
On July 25, at 2:50 pm, a member of the Clinton RCMP was conducting mobile radar enforcement on Highway 97 near 83 Mile Road. The posted speed limit was 100 km/h with two northbound lanes where the officer observed a red vehicle passing others. The car was subsequently "clocked" doing 194 km/h, nearly twice the posted limit. The police officer engaged his emergency equipment and initiated a traffic stop on the red Lexus.
