Two drivers caught racing on Vancouver streets recently blamed being caught on a traffic police tactic.

Two drivers with now impounded vehicles are blaming Vancouver traffic police for what they believed was the clever use of... shrubbery.

Mark Christensen is a traffic sergeant with the Vancouver Police Department who shares often egregious traffic violations he encounters on his Twitter account. Just last month Christensen shared how a driver was caught going 100 km/h in a 30 km/h school zone. Earlier this week though Christensen wrote about how two speedsters reacted to being caught.

"When you are racing along SW Marine doing 112kmh as the speed limit reduces to 50, you likely shouldn’t blame the cops for 'hiding in the bushes'…I was standing by the sign! $368 fine and 7 day impound for both!"
