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.
Happy Canada Day! We set up on the Granville St Bridge this evening targeting speeders. 30 speeders were stopped, 10 were excessive, including this McLaren at 130 kmh and this Challenger at 125 kmh. #impound #speedkills @ChiefPalmer @DeputyChow @Eandersen1507 @VPDTrafficUnit pic.twitter.com/oJwS5PPxAJ— Mark Christensen (@baldguy1363) July 2, 2019
