Police pulled the BMW over 20 minutes later after noticing the driver using a mobile phone and issued a fine of A$590.

"Same day, same car, same driver. Stop 1: 108 in a 60 zone near Preston & 108th, $776 fine," Saskatoon Police Traffic Unit wrote in a tweet.

"20 minutes later, stop 2: 25th St E, using handheld comm device (phone) while driving, $580 fine."

On Twitter, people were shocked over the incidents.

“Some people just don’t get it,” one man tweeted.

“Should be licence suspended for a month maybe then they will get it.”

Another added “some people don’t learn”.

"Lock em up... Blatant disregard for any kind of law and order or public safety," a third person said.

"Time to charge with dangerous driving," someone else said.
