Victoria Police Chief Calls This Highest Speed He’s Ever Seen

Lamborghini sets high score for long-serving officer

  • Lamborghini nearly double limit

  • That speed on busy highway to downtown


COVID stay-home orders have meant less traffic in most Canadian cities, and that meant more drivers shirking the law to try and stretch the legs of their supercars. It wasn’t a good idea then, since law enforcement were on patrol, but now, as traffic returns to normal, it’s an even worse time for Victoria Chief Constable Del Manak to report the fastest speeder he’s ever seen.

That’s right, in 31 years of policing, the driver of a Lamborghini who was clocked travelling in excess of 170 km/h was the fastest Manak had ever seen. The Chief didn’t say which model, or the exact speed of the car in his tweet posted earlier this week, though in one reply he said it was black. We’ll assume it’s not a Miura, but more likely a Huracan or Urus.

Whichever model it is, it’s no longer with the owner or driver. Because Manak said that when the Lambo caught a red light on Highway 17, the road running from Victoria to the airport, the driver was charged with excessive speed and the vehicle was impounded. In a 90 km/h zone, the driver was nearly double the limit. Manak said on Twitter that the driver could have been charged with dangerous driving as well.

In British Columbia, the fine for excessive speed more than 60 km/h over the limit is $483 and three penalty points, but the vehicle will be impounded for seven days for a first offence, and up to 60 days if they’ve had three or more within two years.
