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.
