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.
