150 km/h in 50 zone

Wednesday was a bad day for a driver who roared past a Speed Watch station in New Westminster.

Police estimate the speeder was doing 150 km/h, but slowed to about 80 when they spotted police with radar on Second Street.

The Speed Watch station was set up just ahead, in a 50 km/h zone at Fifth Street.

Volunteer Mary Gagnon says she's seen it all – people speeding through school zones and park zones.

"It’s really quite remarkable that people don’t slow down for school zones,” she said.

She estimates half the vehicles in the school zones she’s seen are going above 30 km/h, and some are going 60, 70 or even 80 km/h.
