Police say the officers of the NRP Traffic Enforcement Unit continue in their efforts to get drivers to slow down on Niagara’s roads.
On June 29 and 30, officers say they wrote over 30 speeding tickets, but three stood out to illustrate how some drivers don’t get the message:
Decew Rd, Pelham, a 65-yr-old female stopped for driving 113 km/hr in a 50 km/hr zone;
Schram Rd, West Lincoln, a 26-yr-old male stopped for driving 151 km/hr in an 80 km/hr zone;
Hwy 420 in Niagara Falls, a 23-yr-old male stopped for driving 144 km/hr in a 60 km/hr zone.
In all of the above cases, the vehicles of the drivers were towed and impounded for 7 days, the drivers were suspended for 7 days, and all were charged with Speeding and Stunting offences, the fines of which can be in the thousands of dollars. In addition, the drivers will face tow and storage fees, and will almost certainly see an increase in their insurance premiums.
Drivers are reminded that the NRP Traffic Enforcement Unit is on the roads 24 hrs a day in all municipalities. Be mindful of speed limits, obey the rules of the road, and drive responsibly.
