A driver received a hefty fine after allegedly being caught going almost three times the speed limit.

Vancouver Police Sgt. Mark Christensen posted on Twitter that the driver was stopped on Marine Drive.

The sergeant posted a photo Monday of his radar speed gun with the display reading "134."

It appears the driver of the BMW in the background of his photo was doing 134 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.

"No where near acceptable!" Christensen wrote.

"Slow down and arrive alive."

The driver was given a $483 fine and the vehicle was impounded for a week, the sergeant said.

Late night enforcement on Marine Dr...134 kmh in 50 zone = $483.00 and 7 day impound! No where near acceptable! Slow down and arrive alive. @VPDTrafficUnit @ChiefPalmer @DeputyChow @Eandersen1507 pic.twitter.com/mi0ObxnACF
