RCMP impound two vehicles going double the speed limit in Burnaby

Drivers could see fines of at least $368

Two drivers will have to find a way around without their cars after Mounties impounded them in Burnaby Monday.

According to Burnaby RCMP, an officer found two vehicles going more than 100 kilometres per hour in a 50 kilometre zone near Marine Way and Boundary Road.

According to the Insurance Corp. of B.C., excessive speed, defined as more than 40 kilometres over the speed limit, automatically nets a seven-day stay at the vehicle impound lot, a fine of at least $368 and possibly more fees under the Driver Risk Premium program.
