Vancouver police sieze $2M in cars for street racing image

RCMP have more than $2 million worth of luxury vehicles in their possession after busting more than a dozen drivers for speeding and dangerous driving Wednesday.

At about 3:30 p.m. local time, police received several complaints of high-end cars speeding southbound along Highway 99 in the area of the George Massey tunnel. The vehicles were spotted rolling along at around 125 miles per hour with two drivers holding up traffic to give the other exotics some space to stretch their legs.

The cars exited the freeway into Surrey where Surrey RCMP officers stopped six of the 13 vehicles. The other seven were located and stopped by White Rock RCMP a short distance away.

Public Safety Minister and Solicitor General Shirley Bond tells News1130 she hopes the young men’s parents don’t let this slide.

“Everyone wants that kind of behaviour there to be consequences. There is an initial consequence here, which means an impoundment of the vehicle. Of course, we want parents to be part of that education process.”

However, police may not have enough evidence to pursue further charges. Cameras in and around the George Massey Tunnel captured the cars as they cruised southbound toward Surrey, but the footage provided no evidence of speeding.
The drivers — 12 men and one woman — were all 21, and six still had their N, or novice, licence. One driver did not have a B.C. licence, and was using a foreign licence, Gaumont said.
Just one driver was the registered owner of the vehicle he was driving.
