A novice (N) driver’s rush-hour trip through Port Moody was slowed right down to a stop recently, after being clocked doing twice the speed limit by local police.
On Monday, Port Moody police tweeted a picture of the stop, noting that the driver had been doing 101 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.
They posted photos of the incident, with a barrage of hashtags while doing so, including #HUGEfine.
The car was impounded as well.
