WEST VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Charges of excessive speeding have been laid against the driver of a Ferrari accused of hitting 210 km/h on the Lions Gate Bridge back in early July.

“The posted speed limit on the bridge is 60 km/h. It drops to 50 km/h as northbound drivers enter that bridge plaza area,” notes Cst. Jeff Palmer with West Vancouver Police.

After being pulled over, the car was impounded for 60 days. The driver was handed a 16-month driving ban.

Yihao Wang, 22, of West Vancouver is set to make his first court appearance next month.

Last month wasn’t the first time the driver was caught speeding by police. He was stopped by the same West Vancouver police officer back in April for excessive speed on the same bridge.
