Police have suspended the licence of a Brampton driver after being charged for going more than 40 km/h over the limit in a construction zone.

In the early morning of Saturday (June 25), just before 1:00 a.m., the Ontario Provincial Police say officers from the Nipissing West Detachment stopped a vehicle on Highway 69 in Sudbury.

Police say the driver was going 117 km/h in a posted 70 km/h construction zone and had no validated driving permit at the time of the incident.

A 24-year-old man from Brampton has been charged with racing a motor vehicle, speeding and driving a motor vehicle with no currently validated permit.

Provincial Const. Rob Lewis said the driver did not have a valid licence plate sticker. He said the incident should serve as a reminder that even though legislation earlier this year scrapped the fees and requirements for licence plate stickers, plates still need to be renewed.

The driver was issued a 30-day driver’s licence suspension and the vehicle was impounded for 14 days.

The accused was released and is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice on July 19 in Sudbury.

Police have not released any additional details on the accused.
