Age has its benefits in the Victoria-area suburb of Saanich, B.C., and a perfect driving record doesn't hurt, either.

Saanich police said they pulled over a driver on Tuesday as he whipped his Buick Century through a 30 km/h school zone at nearly double the speed limit.

But the officer decided against issuing a ticket when he checked the man's licence and found a recently issued five-year renewal on an absolutely spotless record.

The driver is 100 years old.
