The driver received a stunt driving charge for going 40 km/h over in a posted zone of less than 80 km/hr. Their license was suspended for 30 days, and they faced a 14-day vehicle impoundment.

The second charge was laid this evening (Sept. 18) around ­­­6 p.m. in Georgetown.

The District Response Unit observed a black truck travelling at 127 km/h in a posted 60 km/h zone.

That’s more than double the posted speed limit.

The truck driver also faced a 30-day license suspension and 14-day vehicle impoundment.
