Super speeders

STORMONT-DUNDAS — Even a speedy County Rd. 31 motorist felt the sting of Ontario’s anti-Stunt Driving Law last week — seeing his vehicle and driver’s licence seized on the spot for a week on Sept. 19.

Officers clocked the 31-year-old man at 131 km/h as he travelled the roadway through North Dundas Township at 7:50 a.m.. That’s slightly more than 50 km/h above the posted limit, which put the North Dundas resident into the threshold for those on-the-spot consequences. Further fines and penalties are possible if he’s found guilty in court.

The same applies to the other ‘super speeders’ nabbed by SD&G OPP officers through Sept. 23, all of them having their vehicles immediately impounded for seven days and their licences seized for the same period:

  • Male driver, 37, from South Glengarry, stopped Sept. 20 at 6:31 p.m. in South Stormont  — 140 km/h in an 80 km/h zone, Highway 138;
  • Male driver from Ontario, stopped Sept. 21 at 11:33 p.m. in South Dundas — 159 km/h in a 100 km/h zone, Highway 401;
  • Male driver, 32, from Whitby, stopped Sept. 22 at 6:22 p.m. in South Stormont — 151 km/h in a 100 km/h zone, Highway 401;
  • Male driver from Quebec, stopped Sept. 23 at 10:46 a.m. in South Dundas — 154 km/h in a 100 km/h zone, Highway 401.
