A 38-year-old driver is in trouble after driving almost 100 km over the speed limit while drunk.

On Saturday September 4th, Oak Bay police were doing radar enforcement on Foul Bay Road at which time they clocked a blue 2002 Mercedes C240 at 142 km/hour in a 50 km/hr zone.

The driver then turned onto a side road, hit a curb, and drove into a cul-de-sac in the area.

The officer said the suspect’s driver’s side tire was flat and the rim was damaged, and determined he was showing signs of liquor indicia.

An ASD was administered and officers were correct.

The driver was confronted by police officers and issued a 90-day immediate driving prohibition and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

The driver was also issued a violation ticket for excessive speeding (exceeded by
more than 60 km/hr) with a prescribed fine of $483.00.
