A teenage driver in southern Ontario got a little excited on his way to take his licensing test recently and now will have to wait. Let’s all take a minute to learn from and laugh at the youngster, shall we?
Police caught him doing 150 km/h on the 100-km/h Highway 115 south of Peterborough at 9:30 AM (wow, somebody had their morning coffee!) and handed him a stunt-driving fine, which comes with an immediate seven-day license suspension and seven-day vehicle impound.
The 18-year-old G2 driver was on his way to the DriveTest Centre in Peterborough to upgrade to a full G license, but his foot just got a bit heavy and he ended up a full 55 km/h over the limit, enough to get the stunt-driving charge in relation to excessive speed.
It won’t be much solace to the young man, but he’s not the only one who’s been caught goofing off on Ontario roadways recently. Police issued two other stunt-driving charges on that same highway in a 12-hour period, both to drivers travelling at over 160 km/h. And earlier this week a 21-year-old man was caught speeding at 228 km/h .
