Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - The RCMP occasionally make an example of a Manitoban who flouts the speed limits.

Today, a student in the RM of Victoria graces the force's social media feeds.

A 17-year-old was driving home from school on Friday, going 190 km/h in a 100 km/h zone on Highway 34.

When pulled over, he told the officer he was stressed out and needed to get home quickly.

The student is now probably very stressed out by the fine of 1228 dollars issued on the spot, and by a future appointment with MPI's for a license review.
