The Surrey RCMP was busy with speed enforcement over the past weekend, this time catching a Lamborghini that was going more than double the posted speed limit.
On Friday, May 1, the Surrey RCMP’s Traffic Unit caught the driver on the 4600 blocks of 176 Street, just after 3 pm.
Corporal Elenore Sturko says that the “car was observed going 195 km/h in an 80 km/h zone.”
