Driver caught doing twice the speed limit in Red Deer

A motorist has been nabbed for driving at more than twice the speed limit.

Red Deer RCMP say they were conducting speed enforcement on 30th Avenue near 55th Street on Saturday at around 9:30 p.m. when they spotted a driver travelling 112 km/h in a 60 km/h zone.

The vehicle was stopped, and the driver was unable to provide valid proof of insurance, or a valid driver’s licence. The male driver has been summoned to court.

Four other vehicles were stopped for speeding at the same location and issued tickets, say police.

“Citizens making the reckless decision to travel at such extreme speeds pose a serious risk to the public,” said Sgt. Mike Zufferli with the Red Deer RCMP traffic unit.

“These extreme speeds show a wanton disregard for the safety of others, and we continue to work every day to address it, through enforcement and education.”
