A 24-year-old, male resident of the United States was issued a summons for stunt driving after they were caught driving their black BMW at 165 km/h in a 100 km/h zone in the eastbound lanes of the 401 near Howard Avenue on Friday at 5:30 p.m.
Officers from the LaSalle Police Service, Windsor Police Service, and the Ontario Provincial Police Service were engaged in a joint forces operation targeting speeding and aggressive driving when the vehicle was caught on radar travelling at 65 kilometers per hour over the speed limit.
The male’s licence was immediately suspended for 30 days and his vehicle was towed and impounded for 14 days. This suspension IS valid in the U.S. as well.
He will have to appear in court to answer to the charge and if convicted will face a minimum fine of $2000 (if this is a first conviction). Once the period of suspension expires, he will be required to attend Service Ontario to have his licence reinstated and be issued a temporary driver’s licence. There is no fee for the reinstatement.
Keep in mind that a charge of this nature can have significant and lasting financial implications when it comes to insurance.
Please obey the speed limit for all our sakes.
