A traffic stop in Surrey was an “example of the dangerous driving behaviours our traffic officers continue to see,” police said.
Shortly before 9 am on Friday morning, Surrey RCMP tweeted that officers had nabbed the driver of a rented Maserati doing 148 km/h in a 60 km/h zone.
And in addition to the excessive speed, police noted, the driver wasn’t wearing a seatbelt.
Drivers like this, they wrote, “put themselves and OTHERS at great risk.”
