As happens every year, the disappearing snow, warm weather and clear pavement present an invitation to drive a bit faster on metro highways.
One overly enthusiastic biker took things to a new level just after 8:30 last evening and got up close and personal with the RNC as a result.
Police stopped the 24-year-old motorcyclist for speeding on the recently opened Team Gushue Highway where the limit is 80 km/h.
However, the motorcycle was clocked at 180, over twice the posted limit.
Further investigation revealed the bike was not insured and the operator did not have the proper license. The driver was ticketed and his motorcycle was impounded.
