WINNIPEG – Manitoba RCMP say speeding has become a big problem during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since April, the Mounties have issued more than 250 tickets to people caught driving over 50 kilometres an hour over the limit. That’s a 60 percent increase.

Meantime, a 21 year old man is in critical condition after the car he was in rolled while racing another vehicle on Monday on Highway 2 near St. Claude. Two other people suffered less serious injuries.
