Kelowna RCMP recently nabbed a speedster who was driving faster than double the legal limit.

The young driver, with an N (Novice) licence, was clocked travelling at 201 km/hr in a 90 km/hr zone.

“These excessive speeders are putting themselves and innocent members of the public at serious risk. This young individual was clocked at over 200 km/hr this long weekend with many families on the road enjoying vacation time in our community. This rate of speed is completely unacceptable. Please slow down,” said Const. Mike Della-Paolera.

Exceeding the speed limit by more than 60km/hr, can garner a fine of $483 and add three penalty points to a driving record.
