Stepped up enforcement on the Halston Connector revealed "shocking" speeding ending in a few arrests, according to Tk'emlups Rural RCMP Staff Sgt. Doug Aird.
RCMP set up radar enforcement along the Halston Connector for an hour and a half on Wednesday afternoon.
"(Police) were shocked at the speed of vehicles heading out of the city," said Aird.
Officers stopped a Mustang at 3:09 p.m. and found two large bags of marijuana, scales, baggies and cash inside the vehicle.
The lone occupant was arrested for possession for the purpose of trafficking.
A suspended driver was stopped for speeding and also arrested. And six tickets were issued to speeding drivers, all doing 30 kilometres over the posted limit of 70 km/h.
"This is a high-collision area of roadway, particularly at intersection of Salish Road and Halston connector, thus the reason for the 70-kilometre limit," said Aird.
The drivers were subject to fines up to $196 and three demerit points on their driver's license.
Drivers travelling faster than 50 kilometres over the limit automatically have their vehicle impounded for seven days, six demerit points on their license and a $368 fine.
