Need for speed a costly ride

Sometimes, speeding costs more than the price of a single ticket.

An unidentified motorist discovered that the hard way Wednesday afternoon.

Police in Vernon conducting traffic enforcement in the area of Highway 97 and Crystal Waters Road noticed a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed.

The car was stopped and the officer determined the plates on the car belonged to an unassociated van. The driver also had a strong odour of marijuana.

RCMP say the driver, who was on court imposed conditions, was also in breach of his parole.

Police seized a small amount of marijuana from the driver who also faces charges of excessive speed, driving without insurance and misuse of plates under the Motor Vehicle Act.
