Speeding can cost you a car in BC

British Columbia is fed up with high speed drivers. Starting September 20 2010 a charge of excessive speeding will cost you a mandatory impound of your vehicle.

The new punishment will work this way:

  • First offence - seven-day impoundment
  • Second offence - 30 day impoundment
  • Any further offence within a two year period - 60 day impoundment.

The plan is to get the high risk driver who is consistently driving significantly over the speed limit off the road.
