13 youths nabbed for racing $2-million worth of exotics

Thirteen youths racing a dream list of exotics cars on public roads outside of Vancouver, Canada, had their vehicles confiscated by police and were ticketed for Driving without Reasonable Consideration, a $196 fine. At approximately 3:30 in the afternoon on August 31, the local Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) received multiple calls about a convey of high-end vehicles driving at extremely high rates of speed. Witnesses reported that vehicles were traveling at speeds up to 124 mph and were slowing traffic to allow room to race.

The cars include an Aston Martin DB9, Ferrari 599, Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG, Audi R8, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, three Lamborghini Gallardos, three Nissan GT-Rs, and two Maserati GranTurismos. The collection of cars has an estimated worth of more than $2-million dollars.

All the persons ticketed were under 21 years of age; six still had their N, or novice, license. The youths had their cars impounded for seven days as RCMP pursues further charges. The most significant charge under the Civil Forfeiture Act would allow the province to seize the vehicles and sell them as profit, but it is doubtful there is enough evidence. The ticket will cost $196 and the accompanying six penalty points trigger a $300 premium. The young adults are also responsible for the towing and storage costs, which are estimated at $350 each.
