(SOUTH HURON, ON) - A 16-year-old novice driver will now have to deal with the consequences of her inability to drive her vehicle anywhere close to the speed limit.
Shortly before 8:00 a.m. on August 3, 2018 a Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer spotted a small compact car travelling northbound on London Road (Highway 4) near Kirkton Road at a high rate of speed. A RADAR device was used to measure the vehicle's speed and it found the car to be travelling at a speed of 144 km/h in a posted 80 km/h zone.
A traffic stop was conducted and the 16-year-old female driver from London was subsequently charged with Racing. Her licence was seized for an automatic seven days and her vehicle was also impounded. She will also have to attend Provincial Offences Court in Goderich later this summer to answer to the charge.
