Traffic ticket too much for Lamborghini owner
A driver of a Lamborghini worth nearly $400,000 has earned a $568 fine from Richmond RCMP—an amount the 22-year-old driver protested was too high.
Around 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17, an RCMP officer pulled over the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador for a suspected licence plate violation in downtown Richmond, according to a news release issued Wednesday afternoon.
“When the police officer stopped the driver, he soon realized that the car was not insured,” said Cpl. Robert McDonald.
“When the officer gave the driver a $568 fine for not having insurance, the driver actually complained the fine was too much money.”
Police had the 700-horsepower sports car towed away.
The driver, a West Vancouver resident, is also the registered owner of the vehicle.
