BC street racer caught speeding right after having licence reinstated

Posted Feb 21st 2013 7:30PM


One of the infamous 13 street racers we reported on back in September 2011 is out to prove that he still doesn't care for speed limits. Within 2 days of being returned his license Xiao Qiang Zhang was caught speeding yet again, this time doing 160 km/h in that incredibly boring straight stretch between Abbottsford and Chiliwack, BC.

During the initial incident it was alleged that Zhang was the driver of the Audi R8 sporting a "New Driver" identification badge on the rear of the car. This time around the details aren't clear as to what vehicle he was driving though some reports mention a 2010 Audi.

Constable Ian Macdonald of the Abbotsford RCMP was the first to comment on Zhang's complete disregard for public safety. "I don't think we would categorize that as repentant, when you have a driver who you would think would be exercising extreme caution having just been given his driver's license back," he told CTV.

It has become clear over the last couple of years there is no shortage of young drivers in BC who lack acknowledgement and respect of the law. Unlike other Canadian provinces who have drastically increased speeding fines and strict street racing laws, BC's traffic laws are still on the mild side when you look at dollars and cents. As long as these young drivers can get mommy and daddy to shell out for their new luxury cars and exotics, they'll keep hauling ass down our highways and putting the rest of us at risk.
