Police issue tickets to 14 drivers speeding by more than 30 km/h

Abbotsford Police ticketed 14 people for speeding during an enforcement blitz on Monday, and all were going more than 30 km/h over the posted limited.

Const. Ian MacDonald said the speed limit on Maclure Road between Townline and Blue Jay is 60 km/h, but the drivers were recorded at speeds of 91 to 121 km/h.

Three of the motorists had their cars impounded for seven days for travelling 40 km/h or more over the speed limit.

Tickets were also issued for distracted driving, failing to wear a seatbelt, and not displaying the "N" (new driver) sign.
