Police Targeting Blonds?: Alleged Speeder Accuses Abbotsford, B.C. Police Accused Of Profiling


We've heard of traffic cops targeting sports cars and red vehicles, but blonds? Really?

But that's what a blond driver told Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald when he pulled her over after clocking her car at 114 km/h in a 50-kilometre zone, the National Post reports.

Const. MacDonald brushed off the accusation and insisted any officer who can identify the hair colour of a person driving that fast deserves a pat on the back, according to News 1130.

"Safety is key, regardless of your hair colour," he said.

Police impounded the woman's Lexus for seven days, reports.

Maybe next time she should try this blond's approach.
