Video of motorcyclist going 186mph

Randy George Scott of Victoria has been charged by the police in British Columbia after posting a video online of him going 186mph on a motorcycle.

The Saanich Police Department was tipped off by the public on who the motorcyclist was on the video.

The video shows Scott weaving in and out of traffic on the Trans-Canada highway on Vancouver Island back in April.

Scott still has not been arrested and because of prior run-ins with the law, he has been placed on the Saanich Police Department’s “Most Wanted” list. They are advising him to turn himself in.

The charges have not been specified but if convicted of the current charges, he could be facing up to five years in jail.

The speed limit where Scott was riding was posted as 50mph. He was exceeded the speed limit by 136mph which in Virginia would be considered Reckless Driving.

If this occurred in Virginia, he would be facing Reckless Driving charges.  Alex Gordon, a Fairfax Reckless Driving Lawyer with more than 18 years of experience, said “If he was convicted by a judge in Fairfax County, he would likely be facing a great deal of time in jail.  Many Fairfax judges set the standard of setting a jail sentence at 1 day in jail for each mile per hour above 90 mph.  That would be 96 days behine bars and his license would be suspended for 6 months.”
