A 44-year-old man has been fined for excessive speeding after he was stopped by the RCMP on Monday.
A Stratford RCMP officer was on patrol conducting traffic enforcement on the Trans-Canada Highway within the town limits when a vehicle was
noted approaching at a high rate of speed.
The vehicle registered on the police officer's radar at a speed of 154 km/h in an 80 km/h speed zone.
The driver, who is from Kings County, was subsequently issued a summary offence ticket in the amount of $840 and the vehicle was impounded for 24 hours.
Police want to remind motorist that excessive speeding will not be tolerated on Island roads and that anyone travelling at these rates of speed will be fined and their vehicles impounded accordingly.
