A driver has temporarily lost his vehicle and his license after being caught driving recklessly in Agassiz.

On Sept. 29, an RCMP member conducting speed enforcement on the Haig Highway near McDonald Road saw a vehicle moving faster than 160 km/hr. The driver of the vehicle attempted to turn right on McDonald, when the driver lost control of the car and did several uncontrolled 360 degree turns.

The driver then refused the roadside screening test. He was issued a 90-day suspension, a ticket for excessive speed, and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days.
