Motorist clocked doing 171 kmh


Winnipeg, MB (CKLQ) - Another Manitoba motorist learns the hard way that when you turn in a speedster it comes with a steep price.

Shortly after midnight Wednesday a 24-year-old driver passed an unmarked RCMP car on the Perimeter Highway going 171 kilometers per hour resulting in a 979 dollar speeding ticket.

The officer requested a breath sample on the alcohol screening device.

The driver blew a warning but a 72 hour license suspension was issued as well as a review with MPI.
