As roads begin to clear up, police are reminding drivers to maintain safe speeds and practice caution.
One motorcyclist, in particular, was given a harsh and very expensive reminder.

Last week, members of the Kelowna RCMP caught a motorcyclist going nearly double the speed limit on a highway.
The rider was found going 207 km/h on Highway 97C, where the posted speed limit is 110 km/h.
Upon being pulled over by police officers, it was found that the motorcyclist was also unlicensed and uninsured.
In addition to having their vehicle impounded, they received a $1,357 ticket, which included excessive speeding ($483), no insurance ($598), and no drivers license ($276).
