A Chevrolet Camaro and a Mercedes-AMG C 63 have been impounded in Canada over the weekend after being caught driving at greater than double the velocity restrict.
In response to native studies, the 2 autos have been noticed touring at excessive velocity in Nova Scotia and reached speeds of 232 km/h (144 mph) in areas of freeway the place the posted velocity restrict was 110 km/h (68 mph).
Motor Illustrated studies that the duo have been stopped by an off-duty police officer and the pair of them have been charged with “stunting.” What meaning is that there have been performing or partaking in a stunt of exercise on a roadway that’s more likely to “distract, startle, or intervene” with different street customers.
Unsurpisingly, each the Camaro and the C 63 have been seized and impounded. Each males, aged 43 and 48 respectively, have been hit with CA$2,422 fines and had their driver’s licenses suspended for 7 days. To us, that appears like fairly a small punishment, however every week with out driving will in all probability train them that hitting such speeds on public roads is just not a clever factor to do, no matter whether or not it’s completed on a freeway or not.
Curiously, each the Camaro and C 63 concerned have been rocking license plates from Alberta, that means they’d in all probability pushed 1000’s of miles throughout the nation to Nova Scotia.
