SDG — A teenaged motorist travelling at 131 km/h on County Rd. 31 through North Dundas was among the excessive speeders who saw their vehicles impounded and driver’s licences seized for seven days upon being pulled over last week.

Those immediate roadside consequences are a precursor to additional fines and penalties should the super speeder be found guilty in court.

The SD&G OPP stopped the 17-year-old South Dundas resident Nov. 15 at just after 8 p.m. The posted limit was 80 km/h.

A 20-year-old driver from North York similarly lost wheels and licence in South Dundas after being clocked at 159 km/h the same evening (7:20 p.m.) on Highway 401.

Officers also stopped another excessive speeder on Highway 138 in North Stormont shortly after 9:20 a.m. on Nov. 17. That motorist, described only as an “Ontario driver,”  was doing 134 km/h in an 80 km/h zone, according to the detachment.

Officers responded to the reported mischief at Chesterville Scotiabank shortly before 1:40 a.m.
