Delta Police tweeted out their “catch of the day” on Wednesday, a nautically-decorated vehicle going 130 kilometres per hour in an 80 zone on South Fraser Perimeter Road.
“That translates into ‘a-boat’ 73 knots in a 43 knot zone,” wrote Delta Police in a Facebook post. “ The captain, aka the driver, was given a $368 ticket for excessive speed and based on the ‘accessories’ on his vehicle, and that it was clearly unsafe to other drivers on the road, the vehicle was impounded and will have to undergo a full inspection before it can return to the high seas..er…road.
“In all seriousness, due to the speed at which this vehicle was travelling and its condition, issuing a ticket and towing the vehicle was warranted and appropriate,” they added. “This ‘catch of the day’ serves as a reminder to all drivers to obey the posted speed limit on all roads and highways.”
They finished their post with the amusing - and appropriate - hashtag #speedknotappropriate.
