Canada
Police say they impounded the vehicles of two more drivers Thursday after radar showed they were going well over 50 km/h above the speed limit.

The first driver was clocked late in the afternoon going 117 km/h in a 60 km/h zone on Claypool Drive.

The 22-year-old man was given a $988 ticket.

The second driver was caught in the evening, doing 168 km/h while heading downtown on Circle Drive. The speed limit is 90 km/h.

The driver was handed a $1,125 ticket.

“These speeds are pure insanity; we will keep targeting those who choose to put others at risk,” the Saskatoon police traffic unit said in a tweet.
