SD&G — The instant consequences of allegedly zipping along at 50 km/h above the speed limit took several motorists out of their driver’s seats and off the roads of SD&G in the lead-up to November — including a 19-year-old intercepted yesterday on County Rd. 31 and a 66-year-old pulled over Oct. 26 on County Rd. 43.
Exceeding the posted limit by that threshold puts drivers into the realm of “Stunt Driving” — with consequences that start with the immediate seven-day impoundment of the involved vehicle and seizure of one’s licence for the same period. Thousands of dollars in fines are also possible if convicted in court of the Highway Traffic Act offence.
The male teen stopped Nov. 1 was moving at 124 km/h in a 70 km/h zone through Glen Becker in South Dundas, shortly 9:05 p.m., according to the SD&G.
The 66-year-old man was clocked at 101 km/h in the 50 km/h zone through Finch, North Stormont, shortly after 4:10 p.m.
Similarly intercepted and immediately left without wheels and licence were:
• A 29-year-old Waterdown, Ontario, man on Oct. 29 (12:18 a.m., Highway 138, South Stormont, 136 km/h in an 80 km/h zone);
• A 29-year-old Ottawa man on Oct. 29 (6:18 a.m., County Rd. 31, North Dundas, 140 km/h in an 80 km/h zone);
• A 17-year-old male on Oct. 29 (8:48 p.m., Highway 138, North Stormont, 135 km/h in an 80 km/h zone);
• A 28-year-old Thornhill, Ontario, man on Oct. 29 (10:24 p.m., Highway 138, North Stormont, 146km/h in an 80km/h zone).
