Saanich police caught a 2012 Ford Mustang travelling almost 100 kilometres an hour above the posted speed limit on Saturday.
Around 5 p.m. police posted on Willis Point Road – a 60 km/h zone – clocked the Mustang travelling at 157 km/h.
The driver, a 39-year-old Saanich man, was charged with excessive speeding, which comes with a $500 fine and a seven-day vehicle impoundment.
Sgt. Steve Eassie said Willis Point Road is known as a frequently used spot for speeding vehicles.
The road, however, is also used by people travelling to and from Durrance Lake, a popular hot weather hotspot.
