Speeding is not only dangerous but also is against a law and can cost you a hefty fine and license revocation for a period up to two years without a right for renewal.
The driver of a minivan, who was speeding, has been slapped with a $2,694 fine.
Manitoba Mounties say they nabbed a man driving 161 km/h through a construction zone where the speed limit was only 60. To make matters worse, police say he continued to speed through the zone on Highway 16 while workers were on the job.
The 25-year-old driver told the police officer that he was late for church. The RCMP did not say where exactly on the Yellowhead Highway the incident occurred.
Speeding is a major factor in road accidents, as well as distracted driving. Both of these factors can lead to serious crashes with vehicles damaged and people getting injured or even killed. Over 78% of all distracted drivers are distracted because they have been texting while driving.
Unfortunately, a lot of speeders are teenagers, who are not just irresponsible to their own vehicles and lives, but to other people’s health and lives as well. Some drivers just really don’t care about the rules and driving regulations, they do not care for their own safety and their passengers, friends and family members.
