Driver in Mississauga was doing 160 without a licence, police say

Ontario’s stunt driving law might be the least of the worries of a heavy-footed driver who was recently stopped by Mississauga, since they do not have a licence to suspend.

The Ontaro Provincial Police tweeted on Friday that officers from their Mississauga detachment recently arrested a motorist who was travelling at 160 km/h on Highway 410, near Hwy. 407, before they crashed into a ditch. The driver was found to be impaired and, also, had never had a driver’s licence. They were also wanted by Peel Regional Police on other infractions.

Going 50 km/h or more above the speed limit on a highway is considered stunt driving in Ontario. Since July 1, it carries an automatic 30-day suspension for drivers who are actually licensed. The vehicle is impounded for two weeks, regardless of title and registration.
