The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has seen a rise in “stunt driving” cases.
An OPP officer pulled over a 19-year-old along the Queen Elizabeth Highway in Ontario for driving 308 kph.
Schmidt noted that the speed limit is 100 kph (62 mph), and there are areas where it reaches 110 kph. The driver was going triple the speed limit.
“This is absolutely egregious for anyone to be going those kinds of speeds,” Schmidt said.
Another 19-year-old passenger was in the vehicle at the time, and both were released at the scene.
Other areas have also seen more speeding during the coronavirus pandemic.
