RCMP hunt for driver clocked excessively speeding through two B.C. school zones

Witnesses to ‘so dangerous’ driving sought through White Rock

A Surrey man identified as being behind the wheel of a rental car that was clocked doing excessive speeds through two White Rock school zones Monday has been slapped with more than $2,000 in fines.

White Rock RCMP Const. Chantal Sears said Tuesday that a grey Volkswagen Jetta first caught the attention of officers conducting school-zone enforcement at around 3 p.m. April 1, when it whipped past White Rock Elementary at 70 km/h.

“There was a vehicle that failed to stop for police at a high rate of speed,” Sears told Peace Arch News.

“And then he continued eastbound on Roper and then the next officer that was over at Peace Arch clocked him at 110, and he failed to stop for police a second time.”

The legal limit in school zones is 30 km/h.

Following a public appeal for help locating the driver, Sears confirmed Wednesday afternoon that a Surrey resident in his mid-20s has been issued six violations under the Motor Vehicle Act – including two for excessive speed – for the behaviour.

The violations have been handed to the rental company, which will pass on the expense, Sears said.

Sears described the behaviour – which also included erratic passing manoeuvres – as “so dangerous.”

“So lucky that nobody was hit.”
