Last week, Red Deer RCMP caught two drivers exceeding the speed limit by more than 40 km/h, with one driver more than doubling the posted speed limit.
On April 26th at approximately 10 p.m., police issued a ticket to a driver who has driving 146 km/h in a 70 km/h zone on 19th St. west of 30th Ave.
Approximately half an hour later, police issued a second ticket to a different driver for driving 111 km/h in the same area.
“There is no justification for driving at twice the posted speed limit – these drivers are putting everyone around them in danger,” says Sgt. Mike Zufferli with the Red Deer RCMP Traffic Unit. “Speeding is a serious safety issue, and we continue to work everyday to address it, through enforcement and education.”
