Stunt Driving Charge Issued on Front Road

Case #24-1423

A 20-year-old male from Windsor was charged with stunt driving after they were clocked on laser radar driving their Buick Encore at 101 km/h in a 50 km/h zone in the 2300 block of Front Road on Wednesday morning just before 7:00 a.m.

His licence was immediately suspended for 30 days and his vehicle was towed and impounded for 14 days.

The LaSalle Police Service, along with its counterparts at Windsor Police Service and the Ontario Provincial Police have regularly enforced stunt driving as it relates to speeding and published some of the charges they have laid, yet some are still not getting the message…SLOW DOWN!

The purpose of this message serves primarily to educate and remind the public of the dangers of driving at excessive speeds. Secondly, it is to act as a deterrent by explaining that police are regularly and continuously engaging in traffic enforcement which could result in significant fines, the suspension of your licence, and impoundment of your vehicle.

As per Ontario Regulation 455/07 “stunt” includes driving a motor vehicle at a rate of speed that is 40 kilometres per hour or more over the speed limit (speeding), if the speed limit is less than 80 kilometres per hour or driving a motor vehicle at a rate of speed that is 50 kilometres per hour or more over the speed limit (speeding), if the speed limit is 80 kilometres per hour or more.

Please slow down and follow the rules of the road. Let’s all get to where we’re going safe and sound.
