Pack of Porsches impounded for speeding on Sea-to-Sky
4 luxury cars were travelling 45 km/h over speed limit on Vancouver-Whistler highway
The Porsches of four drivers caught speeding on the Sea-to-Sky Highway on Saturday have been impounded, just a week after West Vancouver police warned a similar group to slow down.
In a written statement, Cpl. Fred Harding said that in the last week of July, an unnamed officer issued warnings to members of a Porsche club seen speeding on the Sea-to-Sky — Highway 99 — between Vancouver and Whistler, B.C.
A week later, on the morning of Aug. 4, the same officer saw a similar pack of Porsches and this time recorded them travelling at between 125 km/h and 131 km/h in an 80 km/h zone.
The officer pulled them all over, issued tickets for $368 and had the four Porsches impounded for a week.
Harding said the West Vancouver Police Department will continue to pursue people breaking the speed limit.
"Drivers are reminded that road safety is the responsibility of all road users," he said.
"Driving at excessive speed can lead to severe sanctions from the Motor Vehicle Branch Superintendent which includes the suspension of driving privileges for an undetermined period of time."
