Uninsured driver towed after travelling 100 km/h on Hamilton street

The Hamilton Police Service (HPS) made an example of a driver caught speeding in the city’s west end on Tuesday morning.`

HPS tweeted a photo of a grey BMW being towed on Dundurn St. North.


Police say the driver was uninsured and travelling 100 km/h in a 60 zone.

The driver appears to have escaped stunt driving charges — or travelling 50 km/h over the posted speed limit, which could have resulted in a licence suspension and vehicle impoundment. Stunt drivers can also face jail time, a fine of up to $10,000, and a 100 per cent increase in their insurance rates.
