One driver will have to explain to a judge why he was doing more than double the speed limit on the Trans Canada Highway.

Last Saturday night, a Brooks RCMP officer was on patrol when he noticed the vehicle passing other vehicles at high speed.

The officer clocked the offending driver of a Mustang at 226 kph.

The 20 year old man was charged with Dangerous Operation of a Conveyance and was released to appear in Brooks Provincial Court on September 25.

RCMP say this driver put not only himself, but everyone else on the highway at risk with that speed.
