The Surrey RCMP Community Response Unit (CRU) has impounded four Ford Mustangs for street racing and excessive speeding, in Cloverdale.

The investigation began on April 4, 2021 shortly before 10 p.m. when an officer observed a group of four Ford Mustangs racing down 184 Street near 53 Avenue. The vehicle were allegedly traveling at approximately 135 km/h in a 60 km/h zone.

The Mustangs were pulled over and each of the drivers was issued a violation ticket for excessive speeding. These drivers won’t be back in the saddle for at least 7 days, as all four vehicles were impounded for street racing and excessive speeding.

High risk driving behaviour which includes speeding is one of the leading causes of collisions in B.C., says Sergeant Roger Green of the Surrey RCMP Community Response Unit. It is fortunate in this case that the vehicles were stopped before anyone was injured.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca.
