Female speeder going almost twice legal limit

Members of the RCMP Central Okanagan Traffic Services bust a motorcyclist for going 170 km/h in a 90 km/h zone.

Members of the RCMP Central Okanagan Traffic Services (COTS) sent a motorbike straight to the impound lot Monday morning and fined the driver for excessive speed.

On Monday May 7, shortly before 7 a.m., two COTS members were on a routine patrol to Lake Country along Hwy 97 between the Kelowna International Airport and Duck Lake. The police vehicles were separated by a few kilometers when the lead unit noted a motorbike traveling in excess of 170 km/h in the southbound lane. Successive readings showed the red Yamaha motorcycle to slow down slightly giving the lead member enough time to radio to the trailing unit, a COTS motorcycle, that an excessive speeder was headed his way.

A traffic stop was initiated which resulted in the 28-year-old Lake Country woman receiving a $463 fine, seven-day vehicle impoundment, tow and storage fee charges plus a notice and order for an improperly equipped motor vehicle.

The speed limit on Highway 97 North between the airport and Duck Lake is 90 km/h.
