Peace Officers catch driver going more than 126 km/h in a 40km/h zone

CPO Car

On December 16, 2019, at approximately 2:00 p.m., a Chestermere Peace Officer was conducting routine patrols in the 400 block of West Chestermere Drive.

The officer observed a vehicle traveling at an extremely high rate of speed. Utilizing the patrol vehicle’s dash mounted RADAR, the officer was able to determine the vehicle was travelling at 126 km/h in the clearly posted 40 km/h zone. This is 86 km/h over the posted speed limit in a residential zone.

The vehicle was stopped without incident, and the youth driver was detained.

“This incident, especially around the holiday season, and in less than ideal road conditions, clearly demonstrates the gravity of a dangerous situation,” says Trever Bowman, Chestermere’s Peace Officer Sergeant. “Our goal is to ensure the safety of our residents in order to reduce traffic related injuries and deaths related to high risk driving behaviors (such as this incident), and I am pleased that we were able to address this situation effectively.”

The driver from Calgary claimed there was a "mechanical issue" with the vehicle at the time of the incident.

The driver was charged with several offences under the Traffic Safety Act and is scheduled to appear in Strathmore Provincial Court in February 2020.
