The RCMP is once again pleading with Manitobans to slow down after a driver was caught travelling at nearly 200 km/h.
The incident took place last week on September 10 just before midnight.
Police say they clocked the vehicle going 194 km/h in a 100 zone on Highway 75.
The 40-year-old driver told the officer he "was in the process of downshifting." He also asked the officer to let him off with a warning instead of a ticket.
The officer, however, decided to give him a ticket still. The driver received a $1,280 fine and will also have a license review with MPI.
"This has to stop," the Manitoba RCMP says in a tweet. The RCMP has been posting to social media when catching dangerous drivers in hopes of getting Manitobans to slow down and drive safely.
This has to stop. On Sept 10, this 40yo male was caught on #MBHwy75 doing 194 in a 100. The driver claimed he was in the process of down shifting and then asked the officer not to ticket him. Fined $1280 + license review with MPI. #rcmpmb #noexcuses pic.twitter.com/deX1aIxXxD— RCMP Manitoba (@rcmpmb) September 14, 2020
