Luxurious sedan caught rushing on Vancouver bridge with learner driver on the wheel


VANCOUVER —
A Vancouver visitors cop has been drawing consideration to drivers who pace over the town’s bridges, and his newest catch entails a luxurious sedan being pushed by a learner driver accompanied by a supervisor.

Sgt. Mark Christensen posted a photograph on Twitter Friday night displaying the Mercedes Benz Maybach he clocked going 100 km/h throughout the Cambie Bridge, which has a 50 km/h pace restrict. The posh sedan retails for $212,000, in line with the Canadian web site for Mercedes Benz.

What’s extra, the motive force had a learner’s license – and was driving with a supervisor within the automobile, Christensen wrote. He added that the motive force now faces a $368 effective for extreme rushing, a seven-day impound of the automobile and an extra $109 effective for not displaying the magnetic “L” tag required in B.C.

Drivers with a learner’s license should be accompanied by somebody who can act as “supervisor.” That particular person should maintain a sound B.C. driver’s license and be over the age of 25, in line with ICBC.

On April 30, Christensen posted a photograph of an impounded Porche Carerra that had been going 93 km/h in a 30 km/h zone.

And on Might 14, Christensen posted a photo of a taxi minivan caught going 84 km/h in a 30 km/h zone. Along with extreme rushing, Christensen mentioned that car had “numerous mechanical defects.”
