West Vancouver police have impounded a brand new super car for speeding.
The car was impounded minutes after the owner had picked up his new vehicle and the driver now faces a hefty fine for speeding. Shortly after 10 pm on June 17, West Vancouver Police Traffic Section officer observed a 2019 McLaren 600LT supercar travelling at a high rate of speed Westbound on Highway 1 near 15th St.
The vehicle’s speed was measured at approximately 161 km/hr in a 90 km/hr zone. The vehicle was safely stopped on the highway near Cypress Bowl Rd. While the officer was conducting the investigation, the driver allegedly stated that they had just left the dealership after purchasing the vehicle.
The vehicle was towed from scene and impounded for 7 days for Excessive Speeding and the driver, a 39-year-old man from Coquitlam, was served a $368.00 violation ticket.
“While we get closer to the July long-weekend, which typically means more vehicles on the road, West Vancouver Police want to remind everyone to obey all speed limits and drive responsibly,” says Cst. Kevin Goodmurphy, WVPD. “Your life is worth it.”
