Motorcyclist’s bike impounded in Saanich for twice the speed
Traffic police warn drivers to slow down
A motorcyclist had his bike impounded for seven days and was ticketed in Saanich for speeding and failing to stay on the right side of the double solid line.
An officer with the BC Highway Patrol’s Capital Region Integrated Road Safety Team witnessed the motorcycle on Elk Lake Drive near Beaver Lake Park.
Officers said they saw the motorcycle speed up, cross a solid line into the oncoming lane, and pass the vehicle in front of it.
The official said they determined the motorcycle was traveling at 106 km/h, while the speed limit in the area is 50 km/h.
“Now that spring is here, we’re seeing more motorcycles on the road,” Staff Sgt said. Adam Tallboy, acting police officer in charge of the BC Highway Patrol Vancouver Island. “I want to remind all motorcyclists to obey the rules of the road and to drive in a predictable manner. That’s what you can expect from your fellow motorcyclists.”
