Grant on Global News: Excessive speeding follow-up: how many licences lost?

New data is shedding more light on the issue of excessive speeding in British Columbia.

Every year, for the past three years, more than 2,100 motorists have been handed licence prohibitions for excessive speeding.

Forensic traffic consultant Grant Gottgetreu, a former West Vancouver police officer, says the problem of excessive speeding is worse than revealed by the numbers.

“The numbers are actually higher than what’s actually being impounded, because a lot of officers are exercising roadside discretion,” he said.

As for a solution?

“I don’t see the points going higher, I can still see them leaving it at three points,” said Gottgetreu.
