SOUTH MOUNTAIN — An Ottawa motorist found himself without wheels and licence after speeding through the school zone in front of Nationview Public School at 117 km/h last week.

That’s 57 km/h above the posted 60 km/h limit — and well into the threshold at which on-the-spot penalties apply under Ontario’s Stunt Driving legislation. The 27-year-old man immediately lost his permit to drive and vehicle (impounded) — both for seven days. Additional consequences, including a hefty fine, are possible if the accused is found guilty in court.

SD&G OPP officers pulled him over on County Rd. 1 shortly before 1 p.m. on Oct. 27, ending his journey right then and there.

South Dundas break-in

SOUTH DUNDAS — Electronics were stolen during a break-in last week at a South Dundas business.

The thief or thieves attended the County Rd. 2 address sometime between Oct. 24-25, according to the SD&G OPP.
