A 16-year-old in Regina has been charged after allegedly travelling more than twice the speed limit down residential streets in the city’s northwest end.

At around 7:15 p.m. on Nov. 24, members of Regina’s Aerial Support Unit (ASU) witnessed a vehicle travelling at high rates of speed through a school zone on Mapleford Boulevard and down several streets.

The vehicle was clocked travelling between 80 km/h and 130 km/h through heavy traffic in the area before stopping in a driveway on Boswell Crescent, police said in a news release.

ASU directed officers on the ground to the location of the suspect. Three people exited the vehicle as police arrived.

The 16-year-old driver was arrested and charged with operation of a conveyance dangerous to the public.

The teen will make his first appearance in provincial court on Jan. 15, 2024.
