RCMP Alberta – On May 24, 2018 at approximately 2:00 a.m., Boyle RCMP were patrolling Highway 63 just south of Boyle, Alberta.While on patrol Police observed a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed, well above the posted speed limit. Police were able to obtain a reading on radar of 164 km/h in a posted 100 km/h zone. A traffic stop was conducted and the 68-year-old male driver from Boyle, Alberta was issued a summons for speeding.
“Travelling at such a high rate of speed is totally unacceptable and a prime example of aggressive driving behaviour”, says Cst. Andrew Deme of the Boyle RCMP. “Driving, especially late at night you need to be cautious of other vehicles and wildlife close to the highway. Driving at excessive speeds can effect one’s reaction time, which could lead to a collision. This is all preventable, we want everyone to drive safe and most importantly get where they need to be safely”
The male is scheduled to appear in Provincial Court on Tuesday June 26 2018, in Boyle.
