21-year old arrested and charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle
Garnet Bresson charged
A 21-year old Fort McMurray man has been charged after police allegedly clocked him driving his four door sedan at 180 Km/hr through a 60 Km/hr posted speed limit area in the Timberlea area of Fort McMurray.
Wood Buffalo RCMP allege that 21-year old Garnet Bresson was driving 120 Km/hr over the posted limit on slippery and snow covered streets. There were four people inside the car when police pulled over Bresson. Garnet Bresson was arrested and charged dangerous driving and was also issued a 24 hour alcohol-related provincial driving suspension.
Christina Wilkins of the Wood Buffalo RCMP says “There were no reported injuries as a result of this incident, however this type of behaviour behind the wheel can quickly lead to serious collisions, often resulting in irreparable damage. RCMP are reminding motorists to slow down, and drive to the road conditions. Posted speed limits are set as a maximum when the road and weather conditions are ideal”.
In Alberta, when a driver is caught going over 50 Km/hr or more over the speed limit, the driver is automatically sent before a judge.
