deerfoot trail in calgary


Recommended Posts

"Calgary Police Service conducted a five-hour speed trap on Deerfoot near 130th Avenue S.E. Officers caught 103 speeders doing an average of 132 kilometres per hour.The worst lead foot was a BMW driver clocked at 201 km/h.

Traffic unit Sgt. Mark Ehrmantraut said police receive regular complaints about speeding on the highway. He thinks what they found Sunday isn't unusual.

"It's a snapshot in time on Deerfoot Trail at that location. It's unfortunate," he said.

Ehrmantraut said the speeding BMW, and the average speed of 32km/h over the posted limit, came as a surprise to the eight officers involved.

"It shocked everybody, really. We were expecting some high speeds there, but nothing doubling the speed limit," said Ehrmantraut.

Thirty-two traffic tickets were handed out for infractions other than speeding, including not having proper documentation and not wearing a seatbelt."

Well, keep in touch then - because when you've come that far, we're close enough to Calgary for a meet, and Dodgy could still be here!
