A 49-year-old Prince George woman was fined $398 and her Ford Mustang impounded for seven days after she was nabbed for excessive speeding on Giscome Road.

The RCMP had received complaints that the vehicle in question was seen numerous times travelling well in excess of the posted speed limit. Patrols were made for the vehicle and this morning police located and stopped the 2009 Ford Mustang.

Police says she was clocked travelling at 133 km/hr in a posted 80 km/hr speed zone at 7:30 a.m.

“When a crash happens, the faster a vehicle is travelling, the greater the damage will be, the more serious the injuries and the higher the risk of death,” said Sgt. Al Steinhauser, NCO i/c Prince George Regional Traffic Services. “The faster the vehicle is travelling, the further it will take to stop. Even more so at this time of the year when roads can be slippery. Thankfully the vehicle was stopped before a possible crash occurred. When travelling, police wish to remind everyone to obey the rules of the road so we all arrive safely at our destination.”
