The owner of a high end car is facing a court date and a seven-day vehicle impound, after being caught for excessive speeding on the Lions Gate Bridge on Monday night.

In a release, West Vancouver Police said one of their officers who was conducting overnight traffic enforcement on the bridge “stopped a driver after hearing a vehicle racing northbound at extremely high speed.”

The officer stopped the vehicle at the north end of the bridge after it was clocked at a speed of 210 km/hr.

The posted speed limit on the Lions Gate Bridge is 60 km/hr.

The vehicle – a 2015 Ferrari 458 – was impounded for seven days under the Immediate Roadside Prohibition program.

The driver, a 22-year-old West Vancouver resident, was served a Provincial Appearance Notice for a court date in September on Motor Vehicle Act charges of Excessive Speed and Driving Without Due Care and Attention.

This wasn’t the first meeting of the driver and officer, however. The same officer stopped the same driver in April of this year, also for excessive speed on the Lions Gate Bridge.

West Vancouver Police have impounded 95 vehicles for excessive speed so far in 2017.
