A 23-year-old driver out for a ride in his mom’s car has been taken off the road after police say he was going nearly 100 km/h over the limit in Brampton.

Peel Regional Police said around 7 a.m. on Sunday that officers had pulled over a 23-year-old male on Chinguacousy Road in Brampton.

The driver was allegedly stopped for going 166 km/h in a 70 km/h zone.

Police say the man was out for a drive in his mother’s BMW when he was stopped at nearly 100 km/h over the limit.

The 23-year-old was charged with stunting, which comes with a 30-day drivers licence suspension and a 14-day vehicle impound.

The stunting incident is at least the second time this month that a driver in Brampton has been towed while driving their parent’s BMW.

On Nov. 5, Peel police said that an 18-year-old was nabbed going 161 km/h in a posted 60 km/h zone near the intersection of Mississauga Road and Bovaird Drive West.

Police further revealed that the BMW the teen was speeding in, didn’t belong to him—it was his dad’s.

The man was also charged with stunt driving and had his license suspended for 30 days while the vehicle was impounded for 14 days.
