A driver was caught doing 109 km/h on Hamilton's Jolley Cut toward Arkledun Ave. Their vehicle was impounded, and their licence was suspended.

Anyone who’s driven along Hamilton’s winding Jolley Cut knows it can be dangerous at the best of times. You are driving along the edge of an escarpment, after all. But travelling 60 km/h over the posted speed limit is a recipe for disaster.

Police indicated that stunt driving charges had been laid on a 24-year-old after a motorist was clocked at 109 km/h in a 50 km/h zone.

The driver was pulled over on Arkledun Ave., where the Jolley Cut ends.

The accused had their vehicle impounded and their licence suspended.

Ontario’s definition of “stunting” has expanded over the years as the province and law enforcement try to curb dangerous driving.

Depending on the posted limit, drivers travelling 40 or 50 km/h over it can be charged with stunting.

The penalty includes a licence suspension and vehicle impoundment. Drivers can also face jail time, a fine of up to $10,000, and a 100 per cent increase in their insurance rates.
