A dealership worker has been charged with stunt driving in a customer’s car after police stopped a vehicle for doing more than twice the speed limit near Pearson Airport in Mississauga.
A 22-year-old man was reportedly stopped by Peel Regional Police who had clocked a car travelling at 122 km/h in a 50 km/h area of Derry and Airport Rds. last week.
Stunt driving is partially defined as travelling in a vehicle at 40 km/h or more over the speed limit in areas where the posted limit is 80 km/h or lower.
