Two Saskatoon men had their vehicles impounded in separate incidents on Saturday after driving double the speed limit, say police.
The first incident took place at 5 p.m. on 8th Street East near Briargate Road. Saskatoon police clocked the motorcyclist going “in excess” of 120 km/h in a 60 km/h zone.
The driver was charged and ticketed $966. His driver’s license was suspended for three days and a full technical inspection was ordered on his motorcycle.
Hours later, Saskatoon police clocked a 30-year-old man driving in excess of 100 km/h in a 50 km/h zone on the Broadway Bridge downtown.
The driver was charged and ticked $843.
Both individuals had their vehicles impounded for seven days.
After two high-speed violations within two-and-a-half hours, police are reminding motorists to obey all traffic laws.
