"N" driver with speed racing bumper sticker crashes into tree in B.C. (4 Pics)

"Sometimes a few photos can tell the whole story."

A driver in Oak Bay crashed a vehicle into a tree in the wee hours of Thursday morning, and the car has some rather unfortunate bumper stickers. 

One of the bumper stickers reads, "Street racing is not a crime. Well it is but [expletive] it," and the other says, "Yes officer I did see the speed limit sign (I just didn't see you)."
On Twitter, Oak Bay Police report that an "N" driver with three passengers crashed into the tree at 12:45 a.m. on Beach Drive.

One person was injured and taken to hospital. 

Police say the driver received a whopping five traffic tickets and add that, "we're consulting with Crown regarding a potential criminal charge."

As people start to return to the roads, police say that they are dedicated to increasing road safety with targeted enforcement of unsafe behaviour. They also note that less traffic on the roads due to COVID-19 is not an excuse for speeding, racing or stunt driving. 

On Thursday, May 7, Christensen posted a photo of three vehicles being towed for excessive speeding. He reports that three tow trucks were used to take away the vehicles that were excessively speeding in a residential area. One was clocked speeding at 98 km/hr, a second at 100 km/hr, and a third at 107 km/hr. 

Christensen previously shared an image to his Twitter account of a Porsche being towed on the Granville Street Bridge. The driver was doing 93 km/hr in a 30 km/hr zone, which would also be considered excessive speeding.
Leadfoots beware: 35 intersections in B.C. are now equipped with automatic speed ticketing cameras, 24/7. 

In May 2019, the Government of British Columbia announced that it was cracking down on dangerous driving with a new automatic ticketing system in the summer. However, the system was slowly rolled out over time, with the first five activated in July 2019.
Since B.C. activated its first five automated speed enforcement cameras at the end of July 2019, the government notes that the program has issued more than 20,000 speeding tickets. According to a release, "The fastest ticketed vehicle clocked 174 km/h at a location where the posted speed limit is 80 km/h."

Now, Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General, has confirmed that automated speed enforcement equipment is now in place at all 35 planned Intersection Safety Camera (ISC) program sites and operating at 34 of them, on a 24/7 basis. Have a look at an interactive map of where they are located.
