Man cited with driving 210 km/h over the speed limit

An Alberta driver was cited on May 28 for allegedly driving at the speed of 210 km/h in Lake County. The man was spotted by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police at approximately 6:20 p.m., on Highway 97 not far from Pelmewash Parkway, when he was clocked at the phenomenal speed. He was driving a white 2010 Audi R8 at the time of his arrest.

When police pulled the man over, they also cited him for not driving in accordance with the weather and road conditions at the time. The RCMP claims that the roadway was wet and there was a light rain at the time the man was pulled over. Following the arrest, the RCMP said that it wanted to use the opportunity to remind drivers that they should slow down -- especially when weather conditions have made the roads wet. The RCMP further reminded drivers that speeding and other high risk activities while driving will increase the chances that drivers will suffer a serious injury in a crash.

The driver was cited for excessive speed as per the Motor Vehicle Act. He was also issued a ticket in the amount of $483 and he lost the right to drive his vehicle for a period of seven days. The man's vehicle will remain impounded during this time period.

When a car is impounded and a driver is slapped with a ticket for speeding, there may be legal options available to help the driver in defending him or herself against the citation. For this reason, drivers who receive traffic citations may wish to consult with a lawyer to determine what their criminal defence options are.
