Victoria police ticketed two drivers and impounded their vehicles Oct. 20, after both were caught going nearly triple the speed limit in a school zone.
The two drivers were caught going 90 km/h and 83 km/h in the 30 km/h school zone. The cost for each driver — including the ticket and high-risk driver premium — was $829.
On top of the nearly $1,000-fee, both driver’s vehicles were impounded for seven days.
The Victoria Police Department is warning motorists that driving over the speed limit puts “our children at an incredible risk.”
