Surrey street racing cars impounded, fined over $300

Surrey Mounties have cracked down on street racing near 190 Street, after a police helicopter caught footage of drivers travelling upwards of 150 km/h in 50 km/h zones.

On April 6, at around 11:00 pm, Surrey RCMP’s Community Response Unit say they impounded a Toyota Supra and and Infiniti G37 after they say the cars were street racing. Police also ticketed the drivers, with violations starting at $368 each with added tow and impound storage fees.

Mounties say the drivers may also face potential driving prohibitions and insurance implications.

Last month, on March 26, just before 2:00 am, a BMW 135i was caught by air patrol driving at an excessive speed, according to police. The car was impounded and the driver was fined.

The Surrey RCMP Community Response Unit and Surrey RCMP Traffic Unit actively say the area is known to street racing and they will be enforcing traffic more stiffly.

The Surrey RCMP has a zero tolerance approach to street racing. Anyone caught street racing will be subject to a variety of sanctions ranging from fines to vehicle impoundment and in some circumstances, Criminal Code charges, said Community Response Unit SSgt. Jag Saran.
