RCMP issue a violation ticket to motorist speeding to appointment along Hack Brown Road.

At around 8 on the morning of January 21, 2021, a Chilliwack RCMP Traffic front line officer noted a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed in the 50000-block of Hack Brown Road. Recording the speed of the vehicle on police radar at 110 kilometre per hour in a 50-kilometer speed zone the officer immediately initiated a traffic stop.

The driver related to our officer they were late for an appointment, says Corporal Mike Pfeifer of Chilliwack RCMP.

RCMP issued a $483 violation ticket to the vehicle operator accompanied with a 7-day vehicle impoundment.

We urge the motoring public to slow down when travelling, adds Pfeifer. Road safety remains our priority, arrive alive.
