According to Delta Police, the incident took place Thursday morning, in the 10000 block of Hornby Drive.

Police had stepped up patrols of the area after receiving a complaint of “vehicles speeding every morning” in that area – a marked 50 km/h zone.

In response, police set up laser speed detection in the area on Thursday, as well as confirmed that “the 50km/h sign was posted and the view was unobstructed.”

Police said that at 6:45 am, officers observed a Dodge Challenger in the oncoming lane, passing another vehicle, and estimated the speed to be 115km/h.

“Laser confirmed the speed at 110km/h,” they wrote in a post on Facebook.

The car was impounded for seven days, and the driver was charged with excessive speed and illegal passing on a “laned” roadway.
