THE Surrey RCMP Community Response Unit (CRU) has impounded four Ford Mustangs for street racing and excessive speeding in Cloverdale, police announced on Monday.
The investigation began shortly before 10 p.m. on April 4 when an officer observed a group of four Ford Mustangs racing down 184 Street near 53 Avenue. The vehicle were allegedly traveling at approximately 135 km/h in a 60 km/h zone.
The Mustangs were pulled over and each of the drivers was issued a violation ticket for excessive speeding. These drivers won’t be back in the saddle for at least seven days as all four vehicles were impounded for street racing and excessive speeding.
“High-risk driving behaviour, which includes speeding, is one of the leading causes of collisions in B.C.,” says Sgt. Roger Green of the Surrey RCMP Community Response Unit. “It is fortunate in this case that the vehicles were stopped before anyone was injured.”
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
