Asian Journal - - British Columbia -

Sur­rey: A mo­tor­cy­cle used to evade po­lice in a movie-like stunt through Guild­ford Mall, even hurtling down an es­ca­la­tor, has been seized by RCMP and its owner fined about $13,000. Moun­ties in Sur­rey an­nounced Tues­day that even though of­fi­cers can’t iden­tify the driver in the Feb. 20 video of the es­capade, they are hold­ing onto the bike pend­ing out­come of a civil for­fei­ture hear­ing. RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schu­mann said the 58 traf­fic vi­o­la­tions that led to the fine in­cluded speed­ing, dis­obey­ing a red light and driv­ing with­out in­sur­ance. Schu­mann said reg­is­tered own­ers are re­spon­si­ble for their ve­hi­cles at all times and can choose to pro­vide of­fi­cers with in­for­ma­tion about who was driv­ing dur­ing an of­fence. Own­ers who don’t co­op­er­ate can be charged with the of­fence un­der the Mo­tor Ve­hi­cles Act, he said.
