Teen did 105 km/h in Yorkton school zone, Mounties say
A teenager who drove through a school zone in Yorkton, Sask., allegedly going 105 kilometres an hour, has been arrested and has had his car seized.
It happened Tuesday while RCMP officers were cracking down on speeders in school zones, where the speed limit is 40 km/h between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.
The boy, 17, was charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. The car he was driving, a Pontiac Sunfire, has been impounded.
He's scheduled to appear in court Oct. 21.
A number of tickets for speeding and other offences have been given out in the past week under school zone enforcement, the RCMP said.
On Wednesday, another teenager was pulled over after allegedly going 89 km/h in a school zone, the RCMP said.
The fine in that case would be $396.
