No longer will Canada Post be known as snail mail to police in West Vancouver, B.C.

The department says it impounded a postal van for seven days after catching the driver allegedly going 135 kilometres per hour in a 90 kilometre zone on Monday.

Police say the van was travelling on the Trans-Canada Highway when the driver was pulled over.
