The Hamilton Police Service took to social media on Thursday (May 13) after an officer caught a 19-year-old speeder in the city.

According to the post, the G2 driver was clocked going 128 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.

“His parents will not be happy as their vehicle will be impounded for 7 days & upon conviction his insurance will skyrocket,” tweeted police, followed by the hashtag, “#slowdown.”

If convicted, the penalty for stunt driving (going 50 km/h over the legal limit) according to Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act includes six demerit points, a fine between $2,000 and $10,000, possible jail up to six months, seven-day impoundment of vehicle, immediate seven-day drivers licence suspension plus the possibility of a two-year suspension, and 100 per cent increase to insurance rates.
