7 cars impounded last week

RCMP impounded seven vehicles on Hwy. 97 last week.

Members of the Kelowna Integrated Road Safety Unit spent a few hours on May 23 stopping vehicles along Highway 97C. They pulled over seven vehicles for excessive speed, and each of the cars were found to be travelling between 165-190 km/h along a section of road where the posted speed limit was 110 km/h.

Drivers found speeding more than 40 km/h over the limit were subject to fines ranging from $368 to $483, as well as having their vehicles impounded for a mandatory seven days.

Also caught that evening was a 28-year-old woman from Deep Creek, BC. She was stopped for speeding and found to be prohibited from driving. She also exhibited signs of impairment and was given an immediate three-day roadside prohibition.
