The Calgary police Traffic Response Unit stopped a Ford Mustang on Saturday night for driving 70 kilometres over the posted speed limit.

"The driver, a 17-year-old, told officers he was rushing home to let his dogs out," stated a social media post by the Calgary Police Service. "Driving at 170 km/h in a posted 100 zone greatly increases your chances of being involved in serious life-changing, often fatal, collision."
