An 18-year-old, female resident of Amherstburg was issued a summons for stunt driving after they were caught driving their red Chevrolet Cruze at 127 km/h in a 60 km/h zone on Disputed Road on Monday afternoon. A LaSalle Police Officer who was patrolling the area clocked the vehicle on radar travelling at this high rate of speed and issued the driver with a summons. Her licence was automatically suspended for 30 days. Once the period of suspension expires, she will be required to pay a $281.00 driver’s licence reinstatement fee to Service Ontario before being legally eligible to drive a motor vehicle again.
If convicted, she will face a fine of not less than $2000.00 and her licence could be suspended for not more than two years (if this is a first conviction) and not more than ten years on any subsequent conviction.
Keep in mind that a charge of this nature can have significant and lasting financial implications when it comes to insurance.
Every kilometre you travel over the speed limit decreases your ability to avoid a hazard because it increases the distance it takes you to stop.
The main message to all motorists is to slow down. Please obey the speed limit for all our sakes.
