An 18-year-old Winnipeg man with a heavy foot is out $482 after being caught speeding while trying to impress his date.
Manitoba RCMP say the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze was clocked going 133 km/h on the Perimeter Highway near Gunn Road just after 10 p.m. Thursday.
The driver’s excuse? He was “just trying to look cool for his Valentine’s date,” according to police.
Police tweeted that “flowers are cheaper (and safer).”
