Regina police are looking for the driver of a car that sped through a construction zone on the Ring Road at 183 kilometres an hour.
Officers were conducting laser speed enforcement while workers were in the construction zone Sunday night.
Shortly after 8:30 p.m., one of the officers heard the roar of an engine and saw a maroon-coloured Nissan 350Z or 370Z travelling northbound at a high rate of speed. The officer clocked the vehicle’s speed at 183 km/h.
Police say it was not feasible for the officer to get into the northbound lanes to follow the speeding car, and there were no other police units at other points on the Ring Road, so the driver could not be stopped. The car was last seen weaving in and out of northbound traffic on the Ring Road.
“This kind of driving behavior risks the safety of all other users of our roadways,” police said in a news release Tuesday.
Police are continuing to investigate to try to identify and locate the driver and vehicle.
The driver is only described as male. The vehicle is described as a maroon-coloured Nissan 350Z or 370Z two-door, possibly early 2000s model, with tinted side windows.
Police believe other motorists who were driving northbound on the Ring Road at Wascana Parkway at around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday would have witnessed the incident.
Anyone with information that could help in the investigation is asked to contact Regina police or Crime Stoppers.
