Super speeder grounded on County Rd. 31

NORTH DUNDAS — Zipping through North Dundas Township at 155 km/h, a 20-year-old motorist ran headlong into the tough, on-the-spot penalties of Ontario’s stunt-driving law. When caught, super speeders exceeding the posted limit by 50 km/h or more have their driver’s permit immediately seized for seven days and their vehicle impounded for the same period.

SD&G OPP officers applied the measure June 29 after stopping the Fort Bay, Ontario, man at just after midnight on County Rd. 31, where the posted limit is 80 km/h.

But super speeders tend to be caught more often on Highway 401. A 53-year-old man from China fell into that category  July 2, when SD&G OPP officers clocked his speed at 168 km/h in the 100 km/h zone. He found himself without a vehicle and licence shortly after 8:30 a.m. that morning in South Dundas. Four other 401 motorists met a similar fate between June 27 and July 3.
