Victoria police reminding motorists to slow down

After a weekend incident involving a driver and his pizza, the Victoria Police Department is reminding motorists to slow down.

The VicPD traffic unit stopped a driver on the weekend who was clocked going almost 70 kilometres per hour in a 30 km/h zone near the Cook Street Village.

In a post on Twitter, police said the driver’s reason for speeding was that he didn’t want his pizza to get cold.

The driver was handed a $196 fine with three points on his licence, along with a strong recommendation to use a microwave.
