“This type of driving is reckless and dangerous to the public,” said Constable Julie Klaussner with the Ridge Meadows RCMP.

“Many families are taking this time to get outside for walks or bike rides so it’s important for drivers to be cautious because, particularly at these rates of speed, there is no way you will be able to react in time enough to avoid deadly consequences,” she said.

A 33-year-old man was given an excessive speeding ticket and his vehicle was towed and impounded for seven days.
