Police have taken a Brampton teen off the road after they were allegedly stopped going nearly 70 km/h over the limit in an 80 km/h zone.

Shortly after 8:30 a.m. on Monday (May 22), the OPP says officers from the Dufferin detachment were working speed enforcement on County Rd. 109 in Amaranth, approximately 55 kilometres north of Brampton.

That’s when police say officers witnessed an 18-year-old from Brampton driving 149 km/h in an 80 km/h zone.

Police stopped the driver who was issued a charge for stunt driving.

The accused had their driver’s licence suspended for 30 days and the vehicle was impounded for up to two weeks, police said.

Police did not disclose the name of the accused, who is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville to answer the charges in June 2023.
