An 18-year-old man was fined for driving without a license twice in the same day by Oak Bay police.

On July 20, an officer conducting speed enforcement on Foul Bay Road at Newton Street clocked a vehicle travelling at 74km/h in a 50 zone. The vehicle was stopped and the 18-year-old driver was ticketed for speeding, as well as having no driver’s licence and failure to produce insurance, Oak Bay police stated in a release.

The driver told the officer he would leave the vehicle parked and make arrangements to have it picked up and the officer returned to traffic enforcement. A short time later, however, the officer saw the man driving away. He was pulled over again and issued a second ticket for driving with no licence.

Online scammers make off with $3,000
