Uninsured, unlicensed driver nailed $1,127 for speeding in Saanich

Driver caught speeding past Emily Carr Park playground zone

Saanich Police handed out $1,127 in driver fines on Monday to the uninsured, unlicensed driver of a vehicle who sped down Emily Carr Drive at about 4 p.m.

The ticket, which Saanich Police’s Traffic Safety Unit tweeted out, nailed the driver with fines of $598 for driving without insurance, $276 for driving without a license and $253 for speeding in a playground zone.

The vehicle was towed and the driver knew that he didn’t have insurance, expired in July of 2016, said Sgt. Jereme Leslie.

“The driver also knew that he was driving without a drivers license [which expired in 2015].”

The tweet earned plenty of attention, including that of ICBC, who linked the additional points deductions for the infractions.

ICBC rules stipulate points deductions of three for speeding in a playground and three more for driving without a license. It will cost the driver at least $300 in additional fees if they wish to register their drivers license and insure a vehicle.

The Emily Carr playground is at the 4500-block of Emily Carr Dr.
