SDG — SD&G OPP officers scooped up six super-speeders on Highway 401 and 417 last weekend — including a London man doing 182 km/h.

By exceeding the posted limit by at least 50 km/h, all six offenders qualified for immediate vehicle impoundment and seven-day licence seizure, under Ontario’s stunt-driving law. They also face court dates and hefty fines.

The 21-year-old from London was stopped Feb. 17 at 10:13 p.m. on the 401 in South Stormont.

Next fastest was a 20-year-old man from Waterloo, clocked at 170 km/h on Feb. 20. Officers pulled him over at 1:53 p.m. on Highway 401 in South Dundas.

Other high speeds earning similar treatment included:

  • 162 km/h – male driver, 30, from Montreal, Feb. 17 at 11:22 a.m. on Highway 417, North Glengarry;
  • 157 km/h – male driver, 53, from Hamilton, Feb. 17 at 12:26 p.m. on Highway 401, South Dundas;
