Licence Suspension, Fine For Fort McMurray Teen "Showing Off"

A 17-year-old Fort McMurray teen has had his driving privileges revoked after pleading guilty to excessive speeding near Boyle.

Over May long weekend, Members of the RCMP-Alberta Sheriffs Boyle Integrated Traffic Unit were conducting patrols on Highway 663, just east of Boyle, when they clocked a vehicle traveling 197 km/hr.

Police say the driver told the officer he was showing off for his two friends in the vehicle.

The teen, who holds a probationary Class 5 Graduated Driver’s Licence, made the guilty plea in Boyle Provincial Youth Court on Tuesday.

He was sentenced to a 30-day licence suspension and a $1000 fine.
