      A 22-year-old man is facing charges of excessive speeding on the Lions Gate Bridge.

      Yihao Wang was stopped by West Vancouver police on the morning of July 4, 2017 after he was observed driving 210 kilometres per hour.

      According to police, the posted speed limit on the Lions Gate Bridge is 60 kilometres per hour. It drops to 50 kilometres per hour when northbound drivers enter the bridge plaza area and off-ramps.

      Wang, a resident of West Vancouver, was driving northbound behind the wheel of a Ferrari.

      On July 10, the B.C. Superintendent of Motor Vehicles informed West Vancouver police that a 16-month driving prohibition has been ordered on Wang.

      Earlier on July 5, the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles extended the seizure of the 2015 Ferrari 458 vehicle from seven days to 60 days.

      According to a West Vancouver police media release, Crown Counsel approved on August 18 a charge of excessive speeding under the Motor Vehicle Act.

      Wang is scheduled to make his first court appearance on September 13.
