Kelowna teen did 110 over the limit, say cops


According to police, a BC teen made the wrong move when he went for a ride last week, ending up over 100 kph over the speed limit.

Police say a 17-year-old rider was clocked doing 160 kph in a 50 kph zone. Unfortunately for him, the police spotted him while he was doing the ton, and now he may end up doing time, so to speak. He can’t go to jail if convicted of Excessive Speeding (the official charge), but they’ve already impounded his motorcycle for a week and the cops say they’re looking into the possibility of forfeiture.

Police say the rider only held a Class 7 and Class 8 learner’s permit. The fine for Excessive Speeding is $483, plus three penalty points, but we can bet the BC provincial insurance board will make sure the financial sting is much, much nastier in the future …
