Centenarian warned for speeding in school zone

The 100-year-old man was clocked driving his Buick Century 50 km/h in the 5000-block of Cordova Bay Rd.

A centenarian driver still has a spotless driving record after being issued a warning ticket when he was caught speeding in a school zone Tuesday afternoon.

The 100-year-old man was clocked driving his Buick Century 50 km/h in the 5000-block of Cordova Bay Rd.

Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen said the traffic safety unit officer “wasn’t about to wreck his perfect driving record,” and issued him a warning.

Despite school not being in session on Tuesday, due to the teachers’ strike, Jantzen said there are reasonable expectations that children will be at school, and school zone speed limits are still in effect.
