EDSON, Alta. - An Alberta man has been fined $12,000 for roaring down a highway on his motorcycle at more than twice the speed limit.
RCMP say the huge penalty was handed down this week to a 34-year-old man from Hinton, Alta.
They say on May 1, the speeder was clocked at 263 kilometres per hour on the Yellowhead Highway between Hinton and Edson in western Alberta.
The speed limit there is 110 km/h.
It’s the second steep fine to be handed out in the past three months for speeding on that stretch of highway.
In June, traffic court in Hinton ordered a man from Prince George, B.C., to pay $8,500 for going 206 km/h. [/quote]
