Chilliwack RCMP put the brakes on speeding drivers

Three Chilliwack drivers have their rides for a week and and were handed stiff fines and impound fees after being caught street racing

Three Chilliwack drivers have their rides for a week and and were handed stiff fines and impound fees after being caught racing on Industrial Way last Saturday night.

RCMP had a complaint that three cars were race in the area of Cannor Road and Industrial Way.

When police arrived, they saw three Nissan 240SX  vehicles traveling at high rates of speed,  performing drifts and 360-degree burn outs.

The three drivers were from Chilliwack – two aged 22 years and one aged 24 years. They were issued tickets under the Motor Vehicle Act for driving without due care – a $368 fine. Each driver was also served a notice of impoundment. Their vehicles were towed and impounded for seven days.

“These were the legal consequences of their unsafe behavior,” said Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen. “It is very fortunate that their dangerous and unsafe driving did not result in harm to themselves or innocent motorists in the area, a much more serious and permanent consequence to live with.”
