Fort Saskatchewan RCMP stop impaired driver doing 185 in a 100 zone

submitted by Fort Saskatchewan RCMP

On Feb. 25, 2023, at 4:30 a.m., Fort Saskatchewan RCMP were conducting traffic enforcement on Highway 21 at Township Road 542. Police observed a northbound Honda travelling at a high speed. Police used a laser speed measuring device to confirm the Honda’s speed to be 185 km/hr in a posted 100 km/hr zone.

A traffic stop was initiated and mandatory alcohol screening produced a ‘fail’ result, revealing that the novice driver was impaired by alcohol.

The driver, a 25-year-old resident of Fort Saskatchewan, was issued an immediate roadside sanction and a summons for speeding. He is due in court in March.

Fort Saskatchewan RCMP once again remind drivers of the importance of abiding by the posted speed limit and driving sober.
