A 17-year old male was recently clocked doing 152 km/h in 100 km/h zone, while travelling north on Hwy 5 towards Neepawa. RCMP say the teen had been driving his 2010 Chev Silverado 148 km/h, was continuing to accelerate, and was quickly gaining on the vehicle ahead of him. Unfortunately for the driver the vehicle in front of him turned out to be an unmarked RCMP Traffic services vehicle. Apparently the young driver was on his way to a hockey game and didn’t realize the vehicle in front of him was a police vehicle. He was fined $731 and served a Serious Offence Notice. He now also has to report to MPI within 5 days to appear at a hearing to determine whether or not his license will be suspended.
