Published September 19, 2022 at 11:00 am

The Hamilton Police Service routinely uses Twitter to make an example out of stunt drivers. At 10:29 a.m. on Monday, police posted a photo of a motorcycle being towed.

The driver allegedly travelled 134 km/h on the Red Hill Valley Parkway in Hamilton, despite the posted limit being 80 km/h.

Police posted that the driver’s license was seized and suspended for the next 30 days.

The driver’s bike was also impounded for 14 days.

The penalty for stunt driving – or travelling 50 km/h over the posted limit – includes a license 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 rate.
