A driver in Burnaby is without a car for seven days, and out $644, after police say they were doing more than double the speed limit in a construction zone on Thursday.
Just after 12 pm, Burnaby RCMP tweeted that the driver in question was clocked by a Burnaby Traffic Enforcement Officer doing 74 km/hr in a 30 km/hr construction zone.
To make matters worse, the motorist did not have a valid driver’s license.
As a result, police handed the driver not one, but two violation tickets, totalling $644.
The vehicle has also been impounded for seven days.

Just a good reminder to always pay attention to the speed limit – especially in “Cone Zones.”
Oh, and always make sure you actually have a valid driver’s license when behind the wheel of a car.
