Saskatoon Police Service (SPS) has fined a 16-year-old boy for driving 100 kilometres an hour over the posted speed limit.

On Friday at 10:30 p.m., the vehicle was going at a speed of 192 kilometres an hour in a 90 kilometres an hour speed zone on Highway 16, just west of Zimmerman Road, according to a police news release.

SPS say the driver has been issued a $1,380 ticket and his vehicle has been impounded for seven days.

Another driver stopped at a speed that could turn deadly in an instant last night. A 16-year old (with a passenger) going 192 km/h in the 90 on Highway 16 near Boychuk Dr. was fined $1380 and lost his car. There isn't any justification for these types of speeds. #slowdownyxe pic.twitter.com/8CYrZ7iOnu
