Three motorcycles impounded for speeding and ‘stunting’

Two separate incidents take place in Abbotsford in the last week.

Three motorcyclists had their vehicles impounded in Abbotsford in two separate incidents over the past week.

The first took place about a week ago on Harris Road just east of Gladwin Road at 2 p.m.

Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said a traffic officer was travelling in a unmarked car when he saw two motorcyclists quickly approaching in his rear-view mirror.

The two riders, both in their 20s, passed the officer, who clocked them at 133 km/h in a 60 km/h speed zone and pulled them over.

One of the motorcyclists, who was riding a Honda, only had his learner’s licence, which requires him to be accompanied by a licensed motorcyclist and prohibits him from travelling more than 60 km/h.

The other rider was on a Harley.

Both motorcycles were impounded for seven days for excessive speed.

The second incident took place on Wednesday at about 8 p.m.

A motorcyclist in his 20s was travelling on Marshall Road just in front of the community police office in the 34000 block.

A traffic officer in the parking lot watched the rider stand on the seat of his bike, as he held onto the handlebars.

The rider then sat down and popped a wheelie.

The officer went after the man, who was ticketed for “stunting” and had his motorcycle was impounded for seven days.
