He receives four speed tickets in 25 minutes in Estrie

UPGRADE DAY

A driver received four speeding tickets in less than 30 minutes earlier this week in Estrie. 

The 48-year-old man from Sherbrooke was first intercepted Tuesday morning, around 10:15 a.m., on Route 243, in Potton, while traveling at 112 km/h in an area where the speed limit is 90 km/h.

For this offence, he received a ticket for $124 plus two demerit points.

Fifteen minutes later, the same driver was pulled over again at the wheel of his van. At the time, he was traveling at 90 km/h in a 70 km/h zone.

“The policeman saw that the vehicle was heading quickly towards Route 245. Barely a minute later, he took Route 245 and is captured by the speedometer at 110 km/h, while the maximum limit is set at 90 km/h at this location,” reports the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) in a press release.

This motorist's costly morning continued when, 10 minutes later, he was again pulled over by a police officer for driving 36 km/h over the 90 km/h speed limit, still on route 245, in the Bolton-Est sector.

This last offense earned him a fine of $272 in addition to adding three demerit points to his driving record.

The SQ reminded everyone that speed is “one of the leading causes of fatal collisions on Quebec roads”.
