A 22-year-old Selkirk man will have to dig deeper in his wallet to pay for a date night after being caught speeding — twice.
RCMP tweeted that the man was pulled over twice within 20 minutes by two different officers in Selkirk on Monday night at around 8:30 p.m. The first ticket was for driving 129 km/h in a 100 zone, with the second being 155 km/h in a 100.
Police say the man said his girlfriend needed to get to a dance.
Both tickets cost the man $1,200, plus a careless driving fine to be determined in court, and towing expenses for his girlfriend’s mother’s car.
“Please slow down and drive safely. You are putting yourself and others at risk. There really are no excuses,” RCMP tweeted.
