As a speeding ambulance raced through rush-hour traffic, a driver from Cobble Hill tried to slip into the wake of the flashing lights and blaring siren.
They passed other drivers who had slowed down and pulled over, eventually driving right through a speed trap set up on the Trans-Canada Highway.
Saanich police were set up, around 6 p.m. on Nov. 19, at the north end of Douglas Street near Uptown when they saw and heard an approaching ambulance.
“They saw a truck following the ambulance, with its lights and sirens on, trying to let it part the sea while he follows too closely behind,” said Saanich police Sgt. Dean Jantzen.
The grey Ford F150 was clocked travelling at 95 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.
The driver, a 25-year-old Cobble Hill man, was issued a $483 ticket and the truck was impounded for seven days.

We often had this problem with family members following the amb to the hospital, but not for a case like this, as far as we could be sure anyhow.
