Etobicoke Guardian

A 37-year-old Toronto man charged with stunt driving in Etobicoke early Monday morning has had his car impounded and licence suspended for seven days.

A police officer witnessed the car the unnamed man was driving on Feb. 25 – a 2003 Audi A4 – travelling at a high rate of speed headed westbound on the Gardiner Expressway at Islington Avenue at around 2:05 a.m.

Using a speed-measuring device, the officer clocked the car travelling at a speed of 188 kilometres per hour in a 100 km/h zone.

The man was pulled over and charged with stunt driving (driving at rate of speed 50 km/h or more over speed limit) and speeding.

Under Bill 203, which came into effect back in September 2007, the man’s licence has been suspended for seven days for the stunt driving, and his vehicle has been impounded for seven days.

Last year, the Toronto Police Service issued 381 suspensions for speeding/stunt driving.
