Speeding Motorcycles

At about 10:30 PM on May 16, 2009, a Saskatoon Police Service member on patrol observed a motorcycle on Circle Drive riding at a high rate of speed. The officer was able to determine that the motorcycle was traveling at 195 km/h in the 90 km/h zone and managed to get the individual stopped. A 21 year old male faces charges of exceeding the speed limit by more than 50 km/h as well as motorcycle learner driving contrary to licence restrictions under the Traffic Safety Act. The motorcycle was impounded.

Later the same night, at about 2:45 AM (May 17, 2009), a patrol officer spotted another motorcycle traveling on highway 16, heading east of the city at a speed nearing 200 km/h. The motorcycle was eventually stopped just east of the city. The 24 year old male rider faces charges of exceeding the speed limit by more than 50 km/h, failing to stop for police, and had his licence suspended for 30-days as a result of consuming alcohol. That motorcycle was also impounded.
