This speeding driver could soon find himself in some serious trouble, especially since Alberta police just voted in favour of a resolution allowing officers to seize vehicles belonging to reckless drivers caught traveling 50 km/h above the posted speed limit.
According to police, they stopped the speeding 67-year-old Alberta man after he was seen driving upwards of 180 km/h along a stretch of highway near Black Diamond, AB. The man then attempted to creatively talk his way out of the speeding ticket by saying he was simply trying to dry off his freshly washed car. Looks like that poor excuse didn't hold up in court either, as the judge fined the man $800 and had his licence suspended for 45 days.
We're starting to think his real reason for speeding was to compete with the lead-footed grandmother who recently received four speeding tickets in three hours along the same stretch of road!
