Oak Bay police say a teen’s car was impounded for seven days after he was spotted driving nearly 100 km/h in a 40 km/h zone.

Police say the 17-year-old was spotted travelling at 96 km/h in the 900-block of Beach Drive around 11 p.m. Monday.

His car was impounded for a week and he was handed a $368 ticket for excessive speeding.

Unsafe vehicle

Another driver had their vehicle towed last week in Oak Bay, but not for speeding.

Oak Bay police say an officer was manning a traffic stop when they spotted a vehicle with a severely damaged windshield.

Police say the damage was so extensive that it “impaired the driver’s ability to see out.”

The driver, a 35-year-old woman, had her vehicle towed for a mandatory safety inspection.

Meanwhile, police learned that the driver was unlicenced, and she was handed a $276 fine for driving without a licence.

“Oak Bay police remind vehicle owners and operators to ensure any spiderweb or cracked windshields do not impede the driver’s vision, or the vehicle may be subject to inspection and tow at the owner’s expense,” said the police department in a release.
