Several drivers got a Canada Day surprise Monday evening after Vancouver police set up a speed trap on the Granville Street Bridge.

Officers caught 30 drivers speeding across the span — 10 were going fast enough to be considered excessive speeding, including a bright blue McLaren clocked going 130 kilometres an hour and a dark green Dodge Challenger caught going 125 km/h.

Both cars were impounded.

The speed limit on the bridge is 60 km/h.

This was the second McLaren in several days to be impounded in B.C.'s lower mainland.

Another one was clocked at 161 km/h in a 90 km/h zone in West Vancouver on June 26, impounded within minutes after the new owner took it off the lot.
