    Corvette rips through radar trap at 202 km/h: Police

    6/18/2009
    i880 News Radio AM

    A Mountie in northern Alberta says he's never seen a passenger vehicle going as fast as the 2007 Corvette that ripped through his speed trap at 202 kilometres an hour.

    The 55-year-old driver was pulled over and given a speeding ticket after police interviewed several motorists who witnessed his car rocketing down Highway 63 near Fort McMurray.

    Police say a judge will determine the size of the fine because driving at such a high rate of speed requires a driver to appear in court. The ticket was issued Tuesday during a crackdown on speeding and other driving infractions on the busy highway to Alberta's oilsands region.

    The highway was closed for more than a day this week because of poor visibility due to smoke from forest fires. The driver charged lives in Fort McMurray, but police have not yet released his name. (The Canadian Press, ccg)

    For those mathematically challenged: that's 125 mph.

    Wow.

    Daring types, those Canadians are.

    I heard 125's about as fast as even the ballsyest of them will go 'cause they're all afraid that, if they wreck, with their nationalized health care, they'll have to wait, lying on a gurney in the ER, for three months before getting treated.

    That's enough to slow anyone down.

    Sorry but I don't consider that particularly fast on some strips of highway around the nation.That is unless you get caught.

    Your neck is glowing brightly yet once again Hib.

    I only opened this string to see what was so remarkable about going 202 kph. As others have posted that only about 125mph. Other than the highway being a two lane road, I don't why it's newsworthy??????
