File # BCHP CRD IRSU 2023-888
On May 21, 2023 at approximately 10:00am, an officer with BC Highway Patrol – Capital Regional District – Integrated Road Safety Unit (BCHP-CRD-IRSU) was conducting speed enforcement in an unmarked police vehicle on Highway # 1 near Aspen Road in Malahat, BC, when she observed a newer model white and black Ferrari with Alberta licence plates traveling at a high rate of speed in the Northbound lanes. The Ferrari had just passed several vehicles and quickly caught the attention of the officer who established that the Ferrari was traveling at a speed of 137 km/h within the posted 80 km/h zone.
After bringing the vehicle safely to a stop, the officer identified the driver as an Alberta woman in her 20’s and she was issued a violation ticket under the BC Motor Vehicle Act for excessive speeding. The owner, a man in his 30’s also from Alberta arrived at the scene shortly thereafter to collect the driver as well as the paperwork indicating that his vehicle had been impounded for seven days.
BC Highway Patrol would like to remind motorists that May is High-Risk Driving Awareness month in BC, and police agencies throughout the Province are making our highways safer together by stepping up enforcement of unsafe driving behaviours.
