An Albertan who was recently arrested at 101 km/h on a road limited to 100 km/h saw his ticket canceled after his girlfriend posted the story on social media.
Mathieu Gagne was handed the ticket after he decided to overtake a policeman who was traveling below the speed limit in Sturgeon County which is located north of Edmonton.
The policeman immediately pulled over the driver from Bon Accord, Alberta. He was given a $ 78 ticket for exceeding by 1 km/h the speed limit.
“The next thing he said was, it was disrespectful. I was disrespecting him,” Gagne said in an interview with CTV News.
Mathieu Gagne’s girlfriend quickly spread the story on social media, and shortly after a representative of Sturgeon County contacted Mr. Gagne to tell him that the ticket would be canceled.
According to a county spokesman, the policeman only estimated the speed of Mathieu Gagne’s car, so he had no evidence that he was traveling too fast.
